Challenging the verdict of a lower court which had disposed off a case against the senior separatist leader and National Front Chairman, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, the Jammu and Kashmir police has moved the Principal District Court in Baramulla against his acquittal.
Police challenged the verdict of Sub Judge Pattan in the Court of District Judge Baramulla on Thursday. The court has asked for all the records from the lower court.
Khan was arrested on February 8, 2013, under FIR No 5 of 2000. He was produced before the court of Sub Judge Pattan who disposed off the case and issued his immediate release orders.
Khan was however rearrested in central jail Srinagar and later booked under Public Safety Act (PSA). He was shifted to Kot Balwal jail, Jammu.
“Khan is among the pro-freedom leaders who have spent most of the time in jails and have never compromised with their political opinion,” statement issued by National Front party on Friday said.
Pertinently, Khan is presently undergoing medical checkup at SKIMS on the orders of court.
