SRINAGAR: State High Court has rejected the petition challenging the slapping of Public Safety Act on ‘Chota Geelani’ who is allegedly known for his anti-India activities in Kashmir Valley.
Chota Geelani according to officials is a known stone-pelter who has the potential to mobilize like-minded youth.
Sources told Kashmir News Trust that the family members of Chota Geelani had approached the High Court challenging slapping of Public Safety Act on him.
Sources said that after hearing the arguments of public prosecutor, the court out-rightly rejected the petition of the family of the accused.
Pertinently, authorities slapped PSA on scores of persons after Government of India abrogated special status of Jammu and Kashmir in the first of August last month.
