Jammu and Kashmir: Farooq Abdullah detention extended by three months under PSA

Recently, Home Minister Amit Shah had said in the parliament that leaders like Farooq Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah will remain under detention till the local administration deems fit and that there will be no interference from the central government in this decision.

The detention of NCP leader Farooq Abdullah has been extended by 3 months. He has been under house arrest since the abrogation of Article 370 that removed the special status accorded to Jammu and Kashmir. The Modi government had also bifurcated Jammu and Kashmir into three union territories – Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. Farooq Abdullah has been put under house arrest under PSA (Public Security Act).

Under the Public Safety Act, a person can be under detention without trial for up to two years.

It was Mr Abdullah’s father Sheikh Abdullah who brought the law in 1978 to prevent timber smuggling.

Along with Farooq Abdullah, his son and former chief minister Omar Abdullah, and another former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti.

However, the Supreme Court which went through the fresh report submitted by the Juvenile Justice Committee (JJC) from the Jammu and Kashmir High Court, over the alleged detention of children in Jammu and Kashmir post the abrogation of Article 370 in the Valley, has today reiterated that there seems to be misinformation being spread on this issue and concluded that no minor has been detained.

The SC’s observation came after the JJC, comprising of HC judges Ali Mohammad Magrey, Dhiraj Singh Thakur, Sanjeev Kumar and Rashid Ali Dar, in its fresh report submitted, stuck to its earlier findings which had found no basis on the claims made by many Leftist media portals claiming that 144 minor boys were ‘arrested’ in Jammu and Kashmir since August 5.
