The J&K High Court on Tuesday quashed the detention of two Palhallan youth under Public Safety Act and directed Police to release them.
Justice Rabistan Tashi while terming the detention of Raipora Palhallan youth, Nasir Ahmed Ganie, as illegal, quashed his PSA and directed police to release him.
Advocate Bashir Ahmed Tak, counsel for Nasir Ahmed Ganaie submitted before the court that all the charges levelled against his client are “frivolous” while the fact is that he had already been bailed out by court and yet PSA was slapped on him.
“My client has been arrested on 31 January 2014 and the irony is that police have charged him for the alleged role in stone-pelting in the year 2010. What were police doing and why it waited for 4 long years? Police have also accused him of being the part of group that pelted stones on a police vehicle in October 2013 in Palhallan and for that charge he had already been bailed out by the court,” Advocate Bashir Ahmed Tak told the court.
After listening to the arguments from both the sides, Justice Rabistan Tashi quashed his detention under PSA and directed Police to release him. Nasir has been lodged in Kathua jail.
