Bride Daughter Awaits Release of Detained Father TeH Leader Shaba’an Dar Facing Detention under PSA

Srinagar, October 22 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, the family of a woman, Atifa Tabasum of Wanpora village in Kulgam district, has been forced to defer her wedding scheduled for today after police did not release her illegally detained father.
According to media sources, 62-year-old Tehreek-e-Hurriyat District Kulgam President, Muhamad Shaba’an Dar is detained under the draconian law, Public Safety Act. Although, the High Court had quashed his second PSA detention order last week, yet the police did not release him. Atifa, who is the eldest daughter of Muhamad Shaba’an Dar, was scheduled to get married on Sunday as the family was anticipating his release. “The court quashed his PSA early last week and we were expecting his release soon. That is why we fixed October 22 as the date of wedding. We have now fixed October 26 as the new date,” says Dar’s wife Naseema Akhtar. She said her daughter has been engaged for two years now. “If he is not released we would be left with no option but to go ahead with the wedding without him,” said Naseema. After the court quashed his PSA last week, the sleuths of so-called Counter Insurgency took him into their custody from the Central Jail, Srinagar. Dar was arrested on November 9 last year, booked under the PSA and shifted to Kotbalwal jail in Jammu. His PSA was quashed in June this year, but the authorities did not release him and instead detained him again under the PSA. In August, Dar was shifted to Central Jail Srinagar. KASHMIR VOICE
