D A RASHID
Srinagar, July 21: The High Court has directed the government to disclose the grounds which justify the detention of a senior separatist leader, Ashraf Sehrai.
“Notice is being issued to the respondents to disclose the law and authority under which the detenue is in the custody of the state and also within two days time the son of the detenue be informed as to where the detenue is lodged at present,” reads the Court order.
The court passed the direction after counsel for the petitioner, Mian Abdul Qayoom pleaded before it that the 80 year old detenue is suffering from a number of ailments and his detention order has been quashed by the court earlier.
“The detenue has been ordered to be released in two FIRs under which he was arrested and under which authority he is under detention and where he is lodged,” Qayoom pleaded before the court.
“After he was granted bail on July 6, 2011, the detenue was entitled to be released but the respondents did not release him and again showed him involved in another FIR.of police Station Kupwara,” counsel told the court.
Qayoom informed the court that the detenue filed another bail application before the court of sessions Judge, Kupwara, and the court granted bail to the detenue asking the government to release him. But instead of his release, he was shifted to JIC Humhama, where from he was taken to some unknown place.
He also pleaded before the court that the family members of Sehrai looked for him in every police station of Srinagar but they did not found him anywhere.
