Authorities on Monday booked a senior Tehreek e Hurriyat leader from south Kashmir under Public Safety Act and shifted him to Hiranagar Jammu jail.
The leader has been identified as Ashiq Hussain Narchoor from Islamabad district.
Reports said that Ashiq was detained last month ahead of the ULB polls.
Narchoor is a senior leader of M Ashraf Sehrai led TeH and served as Tehsil president in one of the Tehsils of Islamabad.
Meanwhile reports also said that son of slain resistance leader Qazi Nisar Ahmad, Qazi Yasir Ahmad has also been slapped with PSA and shifted to Hiranagar jail.
Earlier this week, some allegedly obscene videos and pictures of Yasir surfaced on social media, creating uproar in Kashmir.
