Former IAS officer and head of Jammu & Kashmir People’s Movement (JKPM) party Shah Faesal has been booked under Public Safety Act (PSA).
Shah Faesal has joined the list of leaders booked under the PSA in Jammu and Kashmir.
Farooq Abdulla, Omar Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti, Ali Mohammad Sagar, Sartaj Madani, Hilal Lone and Nayeem Akhtar have also been booked under PSA recently.
Shah Faesal has been in preventive custody under Section 107 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) Since August 14 last year. He was detained and later shifted to the MLA hostel in Srinagar.
However, it is not clear if Faesal will be shifted to home or kept in the MLA hostel sub-jail.
The PSA is a 1978 Jammu and Kashmir law, often described as a draconian measure, that allows authorities to detain a person for up to two years without a trial.
