Srinagar, Feb 10:
The Jammu and Kashmir administration on Monday slapped the stringent Public
Safety Act against Hilal Lone, the son of National Conference Lok Sabha member
Mohammad Akbar Lone, officials said here.
Hilal Lone had
been under preventive detention since August 5 last year when the Centre
announced the abrogation of erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir state’s special status
besides its bifurcation into union territories.
the Deputy Commissioner served him with a dossier informing him that he had
been booked under the PSA as the union territory administration felt that his
release could hamper the law and order situation in north Kashmir, they said.
administration has slapped PSA against several leaders, including former chief
ministers Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti, since February 5.
Lone represents north Kashmir’s Baramulla in Lok Sabha.
