Srinagar, Sep 22: Two youth from north Kashmir’s Lolab valley have been booked under Public Safety Act (PSA) and shifted to Kot Balwal jail in the Jammu region.

Reports reaching news gathering agency Global News Service said that Firdous Ahmad Shah, son of Bashir Ahmad Shah and Adil Hussain son of Ghulam Mohammad, both residents of Shatmuqam Lolab were slapped with PSA and sent to Kot Balwal Jail on Friday.

“Whereas perusal of dossier and other incriminating material revealed that subject namely Adil Hussain son of Ghulam Mohammad Shah of Shatmuqam has been involved in activities which are detrimental to security of state and inspite been involved in breaking law of the land and inspite of various FIRs registered against him under the provisions of the Ranbir Penal Code, he has not shun the path of subversion and violence,” reads an order by the District Magistrate in an order (12-DMK/PSA of 2018) issued on September 18.

 

Similar grounds are mentioned in the order (13-DMK/PSA of 2018) issued in the PSA case of Firdous Ahmad.

Adil’s father Ghulam Mohammad Shah told GNS that the orders against the duo was issued hours after a court (Judicial Magistrate Ist Class Sogam) granted bail to them. He said both of youth were taken to the police station from Court and later sent to Kot Balwal Jail.
“At the court, SHO told us to visit the police station. When we went there, the officer told us that both of them have been booked under PSA and will be shifted to Jail. I was shocked on hearing it,” Shah said.

He alleged that the officer also turned down his request seeking a last meeting with his son by him and his mother at the police station.

Shah said that his son and another youth were arrested on charges of snatching rifle of a policeman during the rally of former Minister and PDP leader Abdul Haq Khan.
Pertinently, police had claimed two militants Bilal Ahmad Shah and Zahoor Ahmad killed in Khumriyal were responsible for the rifle snatching incident.

A senior police officer said that apart from the two slain militants, Adil and Firdous also had a hand in the rifle snatching incident.

No one can stop AIP now: Rasheed

Srinagar, May 23: Awami Itihaad Party (AIP) President and Party’s candidate for Baramulla Parliamentary constituency Er Rasheed has said that results are much encouraging for AIP and no one on earth can stop the party from becoming alternative to NC, PDP and other regional parties.

In a statement issued today, Rasheed said that the spirit of democracy needs to be respected and all those who have won the elections deserve congratulations. However, AIP has proved all political analysis wrong and has shown excellent performance by improving its performance beyond imagination. Those who used to accuse AIP of dividing votes should realize that party was not there to divide votes but to give a befitting fight despite all compulsions and the results have proved all those forces wrong who claimed to be lone warriors of Kashmiris.

Rasheed while thanking AIP cadres said that party is thankful to every single voter and party colleagues who voted and worked for an ideology and have laid a strong foundation stone for the future. AIP promises to follow its pro-people agenda with consistency and sincerity. One should not forget that AIP decided at the eleventh hour to contest the elections and without a proper cadre the party volunteers succeeded in sending a deep message to the masses that AIP has the potential to replace those who have given Kashmiris nothing except disappointments and false promises.

 

Rasheed reiterated his appeal to sincere political workers to join AIP and become part of a change which will not only ensure leadership that represents sentiments, sacrifices and aspiration of masses but will also give them best and corruption-free governance.
