4 Bandipora Residents Booked Under Public Safety Act

Police said that their activities were “prejudicial in maintenance of peace and order” in the area.


SRINAGAR — The Jammu and Kashmir police have booked four persons under the draconian Public Safety Act and two persons under Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act.

A police statement said that six persons were booked under preventive laws in Bandipora to keep the “anti-social elements” away from peaceful society.

The Public Safety Act has been termed “a lawless law” by Amnesty International.

The statement said that while four persons whose activities were prejudicial in maintenance of peace and order in the area, were booked under provisions of Public Safety Act (PSA) and two persons were booked under provisions of Prevention of Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act as they were actively involved in this illicit trade and responsible for this menace.

“The said persons were booked after obtaining orders from appropriate designated authority,” the police said.
