PDP leader Nayeem Akthar who was detained at MLA Hostel in Srinagar was handed over to Police Station Sadar today.
Sources told news agency Kashmir News Trust that Akhtar will be shifted to his Humhama based home where he will be placed under house arrest.
Sources added that Akhtar has been shifted from MLA Hostel to his home on medical grounds. Last time, he was found unconscious at MLA Hostel and was shifted to hospital for treatment.
Senior leader Naeem Akhtar is a close aide of PDP president Mehbooba Mufti. He was first detained in August 2019 and later booked under the Public Safety Act (PSA), and released in June last year after 10 months of detention. He was again arrested in December last year just ahead of counting of votes for the District Development Council and lodged in a government building (MLA Hostel) declared as a sub-jail. (KNT)
