JKML denounces invoking of 36th PSA against Masarrat Aalam.
ISLAMABAD -- The Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League (JKML) in Indian occupied Kashmir, has condemned the invoking of draconian law, Public Safety Act (PSA), for the 36th time on the illegally detained party Chairman and senior APHC leader, Masarrat Aalam Butt, and his shifting to Kot Bhalwal Jail in Jammu.
According to reporter, the JKML spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said that violating the High Court orders, the puppet administration once again detained Masarrat Aalam Butt by slapping the fresh PSA on him.
He said that the court while quashing the 35th PSA order against Masarrat Aalam Butt on October 26, 2017 had directed the authorities to release him immediately.
'But instead of releasing, he was rearrested in connection with a frivolous FIR of 2015 lodged against him in Handwara and now has been shifted to Kot Bhalwal Jail, Jammu,' he deplored.
The JKML appealed to the UN Human Rights Council, International Committee of Red Cross, Amnesty International and other world human rights bodies to take cognizance of illegal detention of Masarrat Aalam Butt under the black law PSA and help in his release.
