UHQ reviews PSA cases
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Oct 6: A meeting of the Unified Headquarters (UHQ) Wednesday reviewed cases of persons detained under the Public Safety Act (PSA) and decided to meet again tomorrow to finalise its decisions.
“All the cases have been reviewed but the meeting will continue tomorrow to finalise its decisions,” officials said.
The UHQ had sought additional information about some cases from concerned agencies, they said.
The UHQ meeting, chaired by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, was held a fortnight after the Centre announced an eight-point package to de-escalate the current turmoil in the Valley.
The state government had booked 322 people under PSA, including 50 youth and 22 separatists since January this year. Last week, the UHQ had decided to release 50 youths, including students, who were arrested on charges of stone-pelting.
Some bunkers had also been removed in the summer capital as part of the initiative to reduce the number of security pickets.
