Kashmir: Former IAS-turned-politician Shah Faesal, who had threatened revenge against India, booked under PSA

Shah Faesal was caught at the Delhi airport by security authorities, who had unearthed that the former IAS officer was planning to fly to Turkey from where he was to reach the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in Haque, Netherlands, to file a case against India. 

Former IAS officer-turned-politician Shah Faesal, who has been in detention since August last year, has been booked under Public Safety Act (PSA), reports ANI.

Shah Faesal has been booked after three former chief ministers Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti and other controversial political leaders were booked under PSA recently.

The Public Safety Act (PSA) allows detention for up to two years without a trial for people above the age of 18.

Shah Faesal, who had announced his intention to join politics with much fanfare last year, was detained at Delhi airport on August 14, a week after the centre scrapped special status to Jammu and Kashmir, as he was about to fly abroad. He was sent back to Srinagar and detained since.

Shah Faesal was caught at the Delhi airport by security authorities, who had unearthed that the former IAS officer was planning to fly to Turkey from where he was to reach the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in Haque, Netherlands, to file a case against India.

Shah Faesal, who is the chief of his new political outfit J&K Peoples Movement (JKPM), was on his way to the ICJ to file a case against India for the abrogation of Article 370 when he was intercepted at the New Delhi report attempting to escape the country.

Later, the Jammu and Kashmir government had also revealed that Faesal after arriving at Srinagar, had addressed people and instigating them “against the sovereignty and integrity of India”, which had a potential of a breach of peace.

Shah Faesal has been hate-mongering for a long time. Earlier, after sliding into irrelevance, former IAS officer-turned-politician Shah Faesal had attempted to incite violence and threatened that he would not celebrate Eid until ‘the last bit of insult is avenged and undone’. A frustrated Shah Faesal had threatened to seek revenge and warned the people of India that he would not celebrate the Eid until he avenged the ‘insult’ meted out to him following the historic abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of the state into two Union Territories.

“There is no Eid. Kashmiris across the world are mourning the illegal annexation of their land. There shall be no Eid till everything that has been stolen and snatched since 1947 is returned back. No Eid till the last bit of insult is avenged and undone,” Faesal had said.
