In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the High Court has quashed the illegal detention of two persons booked under black law Public Safety Act.
A bench of Justice Sanjeev Kumar quashed the detention order of Abdul Qudoos Rathar and Riyaz Khaliq Parray who were booked under the draconian law in 2019 and 2020 for their affiliation with the ongoing freedom movement. The court directed the authorities to release them forthwith.
It is to mention here that hundreds of political prisoners have been lodged in different jails after being booked by authorities on fake cases. Most of them are not being presented in courts for the hearing of their cases.
The authorities also do not release those whose detentions are quashed by the courts and instead book them in other cases.—KMS
