Shah charged with fomenting trouble
Srinagar, Apr 19: Senior Hurriyat leader and chairman Democratic Freedom Party Shabir Ahmed Shah, booked under Public Safety Act, has been charged with fomenting trouble in Kashmir and advocating secessionist ideology.
“Acting at the behest of ISI agency of Pakistan and other anti-national elements within the state and across the border, in the initial stages of secessionist ideology, you indulged in the propaganda agitations and training of organizations in order to advocate this ideology,” the four-page grounds of detention issued against Shah by the district magistrate here, read.
“You continue to do so even today and indulge in anti-national activities,” reads the dossier.
“This new strategy is highly prejudicial to the maintenance of the security of the state besides endangering human life and property,” it added.
“On November 7, 2007, Shah visited families of militants killed in an encounter at Neil Pattan and said that armed struggle will continue for separating the JK from India,” the dossier added.
“Intelligence reports have revealed that on Jan 12, 2010 you have attended a condolence meeting in Dalgate and said that the army and security forces are indulging in wanton killing of innocent people and projected the death of the youth (Inayat Khan) as a result of communal hatred, and resorted to various means to arouse the sentiments of common people against the Union of India,” it said.
In the detention order the District Magistrate said the number of inmates in Central Jail Srinagar on April 15, 2010 was 482 against the capacity of 300. “I am constrained to direct the lodgement of Shah at Kote Bhalwal Jail Jammu,” he said.
