IIOJK HC quashes PSA detention of two persons

Srinagar, September 29 (KMS): The High Court in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir has quashed the illegal detention of two persons booked under black law, Public Safety Act.

Justice Ali Mohammad Magrey while quashing the detention of Mohammad Asif Raina and Mubarak Ahmed Dar observed that the detainees were not provided with the materials relied upon by the detaining authority.

The detainees were provided material in the shape of grounds of detention with no other material/documents, as referred to in the order of detention, the court observed.

On these counts alone, in view of the above settled position of law, the detention of the detainees is vitiated as they have been prevented from making an effective and purposeful representation against the order of detention.

With these observations High Court quashed the detention orders passed by District Magistrate Kulgam with the direction to release the detainees forthwith.
