Srinagar, August 14, 2016 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, as Kashmir Intifada has spread over to the Jammu region, the authorities booked a 19 year-old medical student under draconian Public Safety Act (PSA) in Doda for protesting against the killings in the Valley.
Rehmutallah, son of Abdul Rashid of Bhata Dessa in Doda district was coming out from the Jama Masjid of the hilly town, when he was dragged out and bundled in the police vehicle by the police team led by SHO, Doda.
Family members of the arrested youth said that their son was falsely booked under PSA by the police and civil administration by working under a hidden agenda.
“They took into their custody several youths yesterday including Rehmatullah when protests triggered. The police was responsible for creating chaos after the Friday prayers,” said family members.
He has been shifted to the fortified Kotbhalwal Central Jail in Jammu district, said family members who were worried about the safety of their son.
“Last night, Rehmatullah told us in the police station that he was beaten up ruthlessly by the police in custody. He was wounded,” he added, while saying that he is a brilliant student. He is the student of 12th class.
