HC quashes PSA on two Palhalan youth

Srinagar—High Court has quashed the detention of two Palhalan youth under Public Safety Act and directed police to release them.
Justice Tashi Rabistan while terming the detention of Raipora Palhalan youth Nasir Ahmed Ganie as illegal quashed his PSA and directed police to release him. Advocate Bashir Ahmed Tak, the Counsel for Nasir submitted before the court that all the charges leveled against his client are frivolous while the fact is that he had already been bailed out by court and yet PSA was slapped on him.
“My client has been arrested on 31 January, 2014 and the irony is that police have charged him for the alleged role in stone-pelting in the year 2010. What was police doing and why it waited for four years? Police have also accused him of being the part of group that pelted stones on a police vehicle in October 2013 in Palhallan and for that charge he had already been bailed out by the court,” Advocate Tak submitted.
After listening to the arguments from both the sides, Justice Tashi Rabistan quashed the PSA and directed police to release him. Nasir has been lodged in Kathua jail.
In another case, Justice Muzaffar Hussain Attar quashed the detention of a Computer Engineer student Muhammad Adil Mir under Public Safety Act. Mir also hails from Raipora Palhallan. He was booked by police under FIR No. 18/2015 under section 148,149,336,332,427,307 RPC and was shifted to Udhampur Jail.—RK
