Srinagar, June 14, 2016 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, Tehreek-e-Hurriyet Jammu and Kashmir (TeH) has strongly denounced the slapping of draconian law, Public Safety Act (PSA), on its leader and President for Kupwara district, Muhammad Yousuf Lone.
The TeH in a statement in Srinagar said that Indian police had arrested the party leader when he was on his way to Kanthpora in Lolab to attend the funeral prayers of a youth who was martyred by Indian troops. Muhammad Yousuf Lone has been lodged at Baramulla jail, it said.
