Alam, pertinently, is facing detention under the 37th Public Safety Act (PSA) that was slapped against him last year in May.

The separatist leader, who is part of Syed Ali Geelani-led Hurriyat Conference, has spent most part of his life in jail since 2008. In the last 25 years, he has been booked 37 times under the Public Safety Act.
