SRINAGAR Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) on Wednesday said that the amalgams zonal organizer, Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri, who was in police custody since Dec 12 has been booked under Public Safety Act (PSA) and was shifted to Kot-Balwal Jail today.
A JKLF spokesman said that the amalgams zonal organizer was arrested by police for organizing peaceful candle light protests against human rights violations. He was charged under various acts and finally when he got bail in all cases, police today booked him under PSA and immediately shifted him to Kot-Balwal jail, he added.
Bashir Kashmiri was shifted to jail from Maisuma police station and even his family that is residing only a few minutes away from the said police station was not informed by police, spokesman added.
Terming his arrest, as arbitrary, oppressive and revengeful, JKLF chairman Malik said that only crime that Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri committed is that he was promoting peaceful struggle and participated in a most refined, internationally well-established peaceful candlelight protests at the eve of international human rights day.
