SRINAGAR — Jammu Kashmir Government has decided to put bureaucrat-turned-politician Shah Faesal under house detention after revoking his detention under Public Safety Act (PSA).

Police sources said that Dr Shah Faesal was placed under house arrest at Government quarter in Jawahar Nagar area of Srinagar city.

A police party has been deployed outside his government residence and he was informed about his detention.

Almost all the top political leaders, who were released after their detention post abrogation of special status of Jammu and Kashmir, have been facing house detention.

When Shah Faesal was escorted out of the makeshift detention centre two days back, the buzz was that other top functionaries of mainstream political parties would also be freed in a day or two. The optimism dissipated somewhat after it turned out that the move was only a change of address for the former IAS topper.

“We thought he is free now, but it was our delusion. He has been placed under house arrest,” said a relative of Shah Faesal.
