New Delhi, Sep 16: Much is happening in the Kashmir front and SC has come up with a fresh set of observations.
Former Jammu Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah is now detained under the Jammu and Kashmir Public Safety Act. Now, what is PSA? According to this act, the government has the right to detain a person for up to 2 years without a trial.
Abdullah is detained under PSA and the decision for the same came on Sunday night. While his house will be a subsidiary jail all his friends and relatives can come to meet him. The Supreme Court also gives notice to the Centre and the Jammu and Kashmir administration on a plea seeking to produce before court former chief minister Farooq Abdullah, who is allegedly under detention following the scrapping of the state's special status.
A bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and justices S A Bobde and S A Nazeer issued notice to the Centre and the state, and fixed Rajya Sabha MP and MDMK leader Vaiko's plea for hearing on September 30.
Vaiko, who said he is a close friend of Abdullah for the past four decades, has contended that constitutional rights conferred on the National Conference leader had been deprived of on account of "illegal detention without any authority of law".
