High Court Quashes PSA Detention Of NC Leader Ali Mohammad Sagar

SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir High Court on Tuesday quashed the detention of  National conference General Secretary Ali Mohmmad Sagar who was booked under Public Safety Act (PSA) in February 2020.

Sagar was detained on August 6 last year when the centre abrogated Article 370 and bifurcated the erstwhile state of J&K into two Union territories.

Sagar was subsequently booked under Public Safety Act (PSA) on February 5 this year following which he challenged the detention before the Court.

“The J&K High Court has quashed the detention of my senior colleague  @JKNC_  General Secretary Ali Mohd Sagar. Thankfully he challenged his detention even when those around him were reluctant to. This once again highlights the unjust & indefensible nature of the 5th Aug detentions,” Omar Abdullah tweeted.

“Although Nayeem Sb & Hilal haven’t challenged their detentions in court I hope the authorities see the writing on the wall & realise their continued PSA detention is indefensible. They two must be released as must all the others under illegal “house arrest”,” Omar added.

“I hope  @MehboobaMufti ’s legal team take heart from today’s judgement in the J&K High Court quashing Sagar Sb’s PSA detention to pursue Ms Mufti’s case in the Supreme Court with increased determination & vigour. She deserves to be freed without further loss of time,” Omar wrote on Twitter.
