A youth from Shaher-e-Khaas was booked under the Public Safety Act (PSA) on Saturday and shifted to Kot Bhalwal jail.

The family members of Dawood Fayaz Zargar, son of Fayaz Ahmad of Nowhatta, said that he was detained at Srinagar Airport on October 31. 

"He was scheduled to catch a flight for Delhi. He is final year student and was going to Delhi for educational purposes," they said. 

They added that police first said that they needed to question him on certain matters and that they would release him shortly. 

"Today morning, the police informed us on phone that he was being shifted to Kot Bhalwal and we can visit police station to meet him before he was shifted," they said.

They claimed that Zargar never participated in any protest or stone pelting. "Police have framed false allegations against him and prepared a dossier to book him under draconian law," they added.
