Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir High Court on Wednesday reserved orders on a plea challenging detention under Public Safety Act of Ali Muhammad Sagar, General Secretary of National Conference.
A bench of Justice Sindhu Sharma passed the orders after counsel from both the parties completed arguments. Earlier senior Additional Advocate General B. A. Dar produced the Sagar’s detention record.
The Senior AAG had already submitted counter affidavit. Sagar was represented by Advocate Shuja-ul-Haq.
Previously, the court had directed the Government to consider the bail plea of Sagar having regard to health grounds and submit the report. The court had made orders on an application filed by his son stating that Sagar is an old aged person and is suffering from hypertension and orthopaedic complications.
“The applicant (Sagar) has developed a severe cardio vascular ailment during his detention since August 6,” reads the application. (GNS)
