Fateh Kadal resident booked under PSA
Srinagar, Apr 5: The Government has slapped Public Safety Act against 33-year-old, Shakeel Ahmad Bhat of Fateh Kadal for allegedly preaching secession of the State from Union of India.
In its detention order, District Magistrate Srinagar, Me’raj Ahmad Kakroo termed Bhat’s activities prejudicial to the maintenance of public order.
On April 4, 2010, Bhat was arrested by M R Gunj police. Subsequently, the District Magistrate detained him under PSA. However, the High Court quashed his detention and directed his release.
But, police without releasing him booked him in another FIR and lodged him in M R Gunj police station.
In its detention order against Bhat, District Magistrate said: “You (Shakeel) are presently under custody, but there is a likelihood of your being admitted to bail. In case you get released at this stage there is an apprehension that you will again indulge in activities prejudicial to public order.”
Bhat has been accused of remaining affiliated with various “secessionist” organizations. “In the early ‘90s, you remained affiliated with Hizbul Mujahideen and Al-Umar outfit. Subsequently, you joined various secessionist outfits like Democratic Political Movement and Hurriyat (G),” detention order reads.
“Your activities are aimed to secede the State of J&K from the Union of India,” it said.
Bhat has been accused of taking part in various secessionist programmes “sponsored” by outfits aimed at creating circumstances conducive to the propagation of secessionist ideology.
“You have been found to be one of the main actors, who implements secessionist programmes,” it said.
For indulging in activities prejudicial to the maintenance of public order, Bhat has been detained several times since 2007 in different cases.
District Magistrate said, “It is clear that your activities are highly prejudicial to the maintenance of public order and warrant immediate preventive measures to be taken against you to prevent the society from violence, strikes, economic adversity and social indiscipline.”
Keeping in view Bhat’s activities, District Magistrate concluded: “It would be expedient to detain you under the provisions of J&K Public Safety Act, 1978.”
