NEW DELHI: Official orders served upon former J&K CMs Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti while seeking their detention under the Public Safety Act (PSA) have not included phrases such as “radical ideology” and “daddy’s girl” that were part of the dossiers sent by J&K Police.
A PSA order is made out of three instruments – a magistrate’s report, prosecution order and a police dossier.
The final order by the Srinagar administration has also kept out the contention made by J&K police against Abdullah that “he was able to convince his electorate to come out and vote in huge numbers during peak of militancy and poll boycott…”.
Earlier, Abdullah’s “radical methodology” and “capacity to influence people” had been cited in a police dossier as the reason for his detention being extended by three months under PSA. This was reported in TOI on Monday. The dossier on Mufti had labeled her “daddy’s girl” who “glorified terrorists after death” .
PDP spokesman and Mufti aide, Naeem Akhtar, was charged – among other things – for “advising people to read Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Geelani’s book ‘Wullar Kinarey’.”
The latest orders continue to hold Mufti and Abdullah accountable for “making provocative speeches, encouraging mass agitation against nullification of Article 370 and instigating public against the unity and integrity of the nation”. While the PSA order by the Srinagar district magistrate, dated February 5, on Mufti now includes 15 controversial statements attributed to her, the one on Abdullah barely runs into two-pages.
“Wherever necessary, the PSA order is issued after examining the magistrate’s report, the prosecution report, the police dossier etc. Depending from case to case, sometimes inputs are omitted in the order but preserved in records to be presented before honourable courts in sealed covers, whenever called for (sic),” an official said.
