PSA detention of Shah Faesal extended
Srinagar: The administration today extended the Public Safety Act (PSA) of bureaucrat-turned-politician Shah Faesal by three months.
Sources said that the Home department of J&K this evening extended detention of Faesal by three months, barely hours before earlier detention period was to expire.
Faesal, who was detained in August last year after BJP-led Central government abrogated Article 370, was booked under PSA on February 14 after spending six months in detention.
Earlier, the government extended detention of Mehbooba Mufti, Naeem Akther, Sartaj Madni and Ali Muhammad Sagar.
Several mainstream leaders including PC chairman Sajad Lone also remain under house detention after they were released from MLA hostel in February this year.
