Jailed Kashmiri journalist Fahad Shah shifted to Jammu


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Kashmiri journalist Fahad Shah, detained under black law, Public Safety Act, was shifted from Kupwara sub jail to a jail in Jammu.

Fahad was detained under the draconian law Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act after he pub-lished the narrative of the families of some fake encounter victims, which was in conflict with the Indian police version. A Kashmiri scholar, Aala Fazili, has already been booked under the same law.

Fahad Shah was shifted to Jammu jail by the or-ders of the State Investigation Agency (SIA).

Shah was initially arrested by the Pulwama police on February 4 and a day before the bail hearing in this case, on 14 March, Shah was detained under the black law PSA and was lodged in the Kupwara Jail.—KMS
