File Geelani’s parole report: Court to Govt
D A RASHID
Srinagar, Oct 18: The High Court on Tuesday directed the Government to file status report of Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s parole within four weeks.
The Government had released Geelani on the parole last year for a period of six months and it is not known whether his parole has been extended after six months of his release since last year, Geelani’s counsel Mir Shafaqat told the Court.
He pleaded that the state should inform the Court about the status report of Geelani’s parole as it is unclear whether extension in his parole has been granted by the Government.
“Geelani’s case should be decided on merits after it is listed for hearing after four weeks,” Mir told the Court.
The state was represented by the government Advocate, Muhammad Ashraf Thakur, who informed the Court that there was no information whether the parole in favour of Geelani had been extended.
COURT QUASHES 3 PSA DETENTIONS
Meanwhile, the Court on Tuesday quashed three detention orders of detainees who had been booked under the provisions of the Public Safety Act (PSA) and directed the Government to release them forthwith if they were not found involved in any other case.
The detainees whose PSAs were quashed are: Mudasir Ahmad Lone, son of Bashir Ahmad Lone of Kupwara, Saif-Ullah son of Taj u Din of Gujranawalla Pakistan and Qasim Shah Bad Shah son of Lahore Peshawar Pakistan.
