The former bureaucrat resigned from the country’s elite services as a mark of protest against ‘the unabated killings in Kashmir and absence of any credible political initiative from Union Government’.

Faesal became the eighth political leader in Jammu and Kashmir who has been booked under PSA since abrogation of Article 370 last year.

No person be booked under PSA on old grounds: HC

Earlier, three former chief ministers including Dr. Farooq Abdullah, his son Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti were among the seven leaders who were booked under PSA by the authorities.

The other leaders booked under PSA so far include NC’s General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar, NC leader Hilal Akbar Lone, PDP leaders Sartaj Madni and Naeem Akhtar.

A person booked under the PSA can be detained without a trial for up to three months that can be extended.
