Court extends Masrat’s remand by 5-days
Srinagar, Oct 23: The court on Saturday extended by 5-days the police remand of Hurriyat Conference (G) general secretary, Masrat Aalam.
Masrat was presented in the court of Sub-Registrar here after his earlier remand expired today. He was againt sent to the police custody.
A number of lawyers appearing on his behalf told court that he shall be sent on the judicial remand since nothing was recovered from him. However, court ordered otherwise and extended his police remand.
Earlier Masrat’s counsel moved an application in the court praying that legally he shall be lodged in the police station, Harwan, instead of the Cargo headquarters of Special Operations Group.
“Since he has been arrested under the jurisdiction of police station Harwan the case is registered in Harwan police station and he shall be lodged there and not at SOG headquarters which is an interrogation centre,” the counsel told the court.
The court took cognizance of his submission and said “he should be kept in the lockup” and that all the necessary legal aid shall be provided to him.
