Court extends Masrat’s judicial remand till Mar 22
KT NEWS SERVICE
SRINAGAR, Mar 17: A Bandipora court has extended judicial remand of Muslim League chairman and senior Hurriyat Conference leader Masarat Alam Bhat till March 22.

Sources said the remand was extended by Chief Judicial Magistrate Bandipora on a plea by police and the order comes a day before Sessions Judge Bandipora is likely to hear arguments on state’s plea against bail granted to Alam.

Alam, who is presently being detained at Police Station Sumbal, was granted bail by Chief Judicial Magistrate Bandipora in a case FIR no. 53/2015, on February 21 this year.

However, the state government challenged the bail order before the Sessions Judge Bandipora who suspended its operation until 27 February and later extended it by twelve more days.

On January 19, a day after the court granted bail to Aalam, authorities shifted him to Police Station Shaheed Gunj.

The police had sought remand for shifting Masarat to the new lodgement in a case under registered under FIR no 28/2010 under section 124 A, 120 B, 505, 506 RPC.

Aalam is undergoing detention since 2010 after he spearheaded the uprising by issuing protest calendars.

He was lodged in district jail Baramulla since the high court quashed his detention orders issued under Public Safety Act (PSA).

Pertinently, on May 25, 2016 a Budgam court had granted bail to Aalam in a case registered against him in last year for alleged offences of sedition, rioting, criminal conspiracy and waging war against the country.

The Chief Judicial Magistrate Budgam had granted bail to Alam subjected to furnishing of bail bond to the tone of Rs 2 Lacs.

Budgam Police had booked Alam in FIR number 92/ 2015 under sections 120 B, 121, 124-A, 147, 341, 336, 427 RPC and 13 Unlawful Activities Act on April 15, 2015.

On December 28, 2016, the J&K high court had ordered Alam’s release “forthwith from preventive detention”.

The court had passed the orders on Alam’s plea challenging the latest of the 34th detention orders under Public Safety Act, described as lawless law by amnesty international.

Alam was released after a 53-month-long captivity on March 7, 2015. However, he was again re-arrested on 17 April 2015 and was slapped PSA by the PDP-BJP government to calm down “anger” expressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi against his release. His earlier PSA detentions were also quashed by the high court with a direction to authorities to release him. But he continues to be behind bars.
