JKLF zonal organizer booked under PSA, shifted to Kot-Balwal
Srinagar: Zonal organizer of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri who was in police custody from 12th December 2018 has been booked under Public Safety Act (PSA) and shifted to Kot-Balwal Jail toady.
A JKLF spokesman in a statement said that zonal organizer was arrested by police for organizing peaceful candle light protests against human rights violations in Jammu Kashmir. He was charged under various acts and finally when he got bail in all cases, police today booked him under PSA and immediately shifted him to Kot-Balwal Jail. He was shifted to jail from Maisuma police station and even his family that is residing only a few minutes away from the said police station was not informed by police.
Terming his arrest, execution of PSA on him and shifting him to Jammu without any prior information to his family as arbitrary, oppressive and revengeful, JKLF Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik has said that only crime that Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri committed is that he was promoting peaceful struggle and participated in a most refined, internationally well-established peaceful candlelight protests at the eve of international human rights day.
JKLF chairman said that booking a peaceful political man in such a way is a testimony of police and civil administration nexus and also glaring example of how police and administration are hell-bent upon promoting violence and choking every little space of peaceful politics in Kashmir.
