IIOJK HC quashes PSA detention of a prisoner


Srinagar, March 10 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the High Court has quashed the illegal detention of a man booked under the black law Public Safety Act (PSA) and ordered his immediate release.

The bench of Justice Sanjay Dhar directed the authorities to release the detainee Kaiser Ahmad Beig forthwith. Kaiser was booked under the PSA by an order issued by District Magistrate Islamabad on October 19, 2021.

The court said that the detaining authority had not meticulously examined the record while passing the order of detention which renders it unsustainable in law.
