NC leader Farooq Abdullah detained under Public Safety Act, his house to be turned into a ‘subsidiary jail’

Farooq Abdullah has been detained at his residence by the government under PSA and his house has been declared as subsidiary jail. He will continue to stay at his house. There is however no bar on meeting relatives and friends.

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah has been detained under the Public Safety Act (PSA).

Farooq Abdullah has now been detained under the Public Safety Act. The Public Safety Act allows the government to detain a person for up to 2 years without a trial. The union government’s decision to slap PSA on the National Conference leader reportedly came on Sunday night.

According to reports, Farooq Abdullah has been detained at his residence by the government under PSA and his house has been declared as subsidiary jail. He will continue to stay at his house. There is however no bar on meeting relatives and friends.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has sought a response from the Centre and the Jammu and Kashmir administration on a plea seeking to produce Farooq Abdullah before the court.

A bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and justices S A Bobde and S A Nazeer issued a notice to the Centre and the state. The apex court also decided to hear the plea of Rajya Sabha MP and MDMK leader Vaiko’s on September 30.

Soon after the abrogation of Article 370 on August 7, National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah had not stepped out of the house and even skipped the assembly session claiming he was unwell. After Home Minister Amit Shah informed the house that Abdullah is neither arrested nor detained but had skipped Lok Sabha out of his own free will, former CM Abdullah woke up and gave media bytes stating why would he stay inside his house when ‘his state is being burned’ and his people are being executed in jails.
