Srinagar, June 03: After months of detention, Jammu and Kashmir government Wednesday revoked the Public Safety Act (PSA) of two PDP leaders—Sartaj Madani and Peer Mansoor and IAS topper turned politician Shah Faesal.

An official told news agency KINS that these three leaders will be released very soon. 

Reacting to the development, former chief minister Omar Abdullah as per the news agency KINS Tweeted, “Good to hear @shahfaesal, Peer Mansoor & Sartaj Madani have been released from their unjust PSA detention. Disappointed that @MehboobaMufti, Sagar Sb & Hilal Lone continue to be detained. It’s high time they are set free as well.”

He said, “Not to mention the many others under informal house arrest for the last 10 months. It’s time the rule of law is applied to all equally & these leaders are allowed to leave their homes without their guards locking them inside without cause, justification or any detention order.”
