Srinagar: Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Syeda Aasiya Andrabi and her close aide Sofi Fahmeeda were booked under Public Safety Act and shifted to Kotbolwal jail in Jammu on Thursday.
â€œSyeda Asiya Andrabi and Sofi Fahmeeda have been booked under PSA and shifted to Kotbolwal jail in Jammu,â€ acting chairperson of the DeM, Rifat Fatima said in a statement here. She condemned invoking of PSA against the duo as â€œfrustrationâ€ of the government. â€œWe also condemn shifting of Asiya Andrabi to Kotbolwal despite directions by the High Court and Supreme Court in 2009.â€Â
Asiya Andrabi was arrested on August 28 last during a raid at Habak Zakura in the outskirts of the city.
Aasiya had gone underground to evade arrest since Hurriyat Conference (G) launched â€˜Quit Kashmir Campaignâ€™ since her her detention. She was lodged in Womanâ€™s jail in Rambagh here for past three days.
Official sources said that Andrabi was booked for â€œinciting people against the state and police.â€Â
The orders of PSA have been issued by Deputy Commissioner Srinagar, Mehraj Ahmad Kakroo, the sources added.Â Despite repeated attempts, the commissioner could not be contacted for the comment.
