In occupied Kashmir, a private school teacher and an activist of Jamaat-e-Islami from Kupwara district has been booked under draconian law, Public Safety Act (PSA), and shifted to Kupwara jail.
Zahoor Abbas Khan, a 39-year-old son of Mohammad Abbas Khan of Devar Lolab, Kupwara, was arrested on 7 July and was lodged in Police Station Lolab; however, draconian PSA was invoked against him on 18 July and was shifted to Kupwara jail, his family members told media.
Last year, in February, authorities had detained hundreds of leaders and activists of the socio-religious organisation across the Valley.—KMS
