J&K leader Shah Faesal booked under PSA

The Jammu and Kashmir administration has booked former IAS officer-turned-politician Shah Faesal under the controversial Public Safety Act (PSA), sources said on Saturday.

Former chief ministers Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti were also booked under the PSA.

Shah was detained on August 14, a week after the centre scrapped special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

Several politicians were detained in August as part of the centre’s massive crackdown after its decision to end special status to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 of the constitution and split it into two union territories.
