Srinagar (NVI): Former bureaucrat turned politician, Shah Faesal was booked, today, by Jammu and Kashmir administration under stringent Public Safety Act (PSA).
Faesal has joined the list of other leaders booked under PSA in Jammu and Kashmir. Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti have also been booked under PSA.
He had quit the administrative services last year in January citing “unabated killings” in Kashmir.
Faesal also launched his own political party — Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement.
He has been under detention since August last year when the Centre withdrew the special status of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated it into Union Territories — Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.
He had criticized Centre’s move of scrapping Article 370.
A person booked under the PSA can be detained without a trial for up to three months that can be extended.
