PSA slapped on 18 separatists in 2 months


Srinagar, Aug 3: At least 18 separatists have been booked under the Public Safety Act after the rape and murder of Asiya and Neelofar in south Kashmir’s Shopian district on May 29 this year.
According to the figures available with Greater Kashmir, Hurriyat (G) tops the list, as 13 of its activists, including its chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, undergoing treatment at SK Institute of Medical Sciences, have been booked under PSA.
The list of detainees includes Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah, Sheikh Mushtaq Ahmad, Muhammad Afzal Lone, Dr Ghulam Muhammad Ganai, Syed Imtiyaz Hyder, Abdul Rehman Dar, Ghulam Nabi Sumji, Muhammad Yousuf Mir, Moulvi Bashir Ahmad, Muhammad Rafiq Ganai and Farooq Ahmad Gotepuri.
“All of them were booked under PSA in the past two months for leading protest marches over the Shopian incident. None is charged with any militancy related incident,” the Hurriyat (G) spokesman, Ayyaz Akbar said.
He said the health of the arrested leaders and activists was deteriorating in jails and no one was being allowed to meet them. “Even we are not being allowed to meet Geelani sahib,” he added.
Two senior leaders of the Hurriyat Conference (M), Nayeem Ahmed Khan and Shabir Ahmad Shah too were booked under PSA after the Valley-wide agitation against the Shopian incident broke out. Khan has been lodged in Udhampur jail, while Shah is languishing in Kathua.
“They were put under house arrest initially but were booked under PSA after they defied restrictions,” senior activist of Hurriyat (M), Shahid-ul-Islam, said.
Four others figuring in the list include the chief of Dukhtarn-e-Millat, Asiya Andrabi, senior DeM activist, Fahmeeda Mirza, the secretary general of the JKLF(R), Muhammad Salim Nanaji and the district president of JKLF for Kulgam, Ghulam Nabi Kashmiri. All of them have been lodged in the jails outside the Valley.
Recently the Jammu and Kashmir High Court had asked the government to shift Asiya Andrabi to Srinagar Central Jail but till date the orders have not been implemented
