Pulwama youth booked under PSA, shifted to Kathua jail

KL Report


A youth has been booked under Public Safety Act (PSA), described as lawless law by Amnesty International, and has been shifted to Kathua Jail, official sources told GNS today.

They said Waseem Ahmad Sofi (23), son of Bashir Ahmad of Dangerpora village of Pulwama in South Kashmir was arrested by police last week. After remaining in police custody for three consecutive days, the youth was booked under PSA (DM no. 12 dated 03-05-2012) for his alleged role in pelting stones on the forces. He was shifted to Kathua jail early Sunday morning.

However, the family refuted the police claims that the youth was involved in stone pelting.

“Police claims are a concocted and my brother has nothing do to with stone pelting,” Sofi’s cousin told GNS.
