New Delhi, November 11, 2022 (PPI-OT):A Delhi court has granted bail to a Kashmiri youth illegally detained in a false case registered by India’s notorious National Investigation Agency (NIA) under the draconian law, Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. The Principal District and Sessions Judge, Dharmesh Sharma of Patiala House Courts granted bail to 25-year-old Fayaz Ahmad Khan after NIA failed to file a charge-sheet within the statutory period against him. He was arrested by the probe agency on 14th May in the territory in a false case.
As the period of 180 days for filing the charge-sheet against Fayaz Khan expired, his counsel Tamanna Pankaj moved a bail application following which the judge ordered his release. The court has ordered Fayaz Khan to report and provide his contact number, before the local police station in Kupwara district of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir on every second Sunday. He is also required to notify the local SHO in advance in case he decides to visit any place outside his native village in the Kupwara district.
The NIA didn’t file charge-sheet against Fayaz as he was implicated in a false case. Thousands of Kashmiris including Hurriyat leaders and activists are languishing in different jails of IIOJK and India in false cases registered against them just for their affiliation with the ongoing freedom movement.
