Booked under PSA journalist Asif Sultan lodged in Kot Bhalwal jail

49

Kashmiri journalist Asif Sultan, who was granted bail earlier this week in an Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) case, has been booked under another draconian law, Public Safety Act (PSA).

Rakesh Balwal, the senior superintendent of police, Srinagar, confirmed that Sultan has been booked under PSA and shifted to Kot Bhalwal jail, in the Jammu division.

Sultan was earlier bailed by a special court under NIA Act in Srinagar after nearly four years in prison. He was later handed over to Police Station Batamaloo, in Srinagar, where he remained detained.

Sultan was arrested on 27 August 2018 on a false accusation by the police— a charge that has been repeatedly rejected by his family.—KMS
