Srinagar: A prominent religious cleric and vice president of Jamiat-e-Ahle Hadees, Moulana Mushtaq Ahmad Veeri was on Saturday released from detention.
A relative of Veeri confirmed that Moulana Veeri has reached home and he was welcomed by locals as well as by relatives.
Veeri was arrested on February 24, 2019 following a crackdown on Kashmir’s largest socio-religious organisation Jama’at-e-Islami.
He was later booked under Public Safety Act (PSA) and was shifted to Kot Balwal Jail in Jammu.
His release comes a few days after the freeing of cleric Sarjan Ahmad Barkati. (KNO)
