High Court Quashes Four PSAs, Orders Release of Detainees

The High Court of Jammu and Kashmir has quashed four detention orders under the Public Safety Act (PSA), citing a lack of proper consideration by the detaining authority.

Release Orders Issued

As a result of the court’s decision, Ashiq Hussain Sheikh from Bhaderwah Doda, Yawar Ahmad Bhat from Pulwama, Sageer Ahmad, and Tariq Ahmad Sheikh from Srinagar are to be released.

Reasoning Behind the Decision

The court based its decision on the observation that the detaining authority failed to provide compelling reasons justifying the detentions. It stressed that preventive detention should not act as a substitute for criminal proceedings.

Critique of Detention Orders

In the case of Yawar Ahmad Bhat, the court criticized the “sweeping and generalized nature” of the dossier against him, noting that the grounds for detention were merely repeated verbatim from police records.

Additionally, regarding Sageer Ahmad and Tariq Ahmad Sheikh, the court highlighted the detaining authority’s failure to consider all relevant facts before making its decision. It emphasized the importance of presenting complete information to enable the detaining authority to reach a justified conclusion.

This ruling underscores the importance of adherence to legal procedures and the necessity for thorough consideration of all relevant factors in matters of detention under the Public Safety Act.
