DSP Davinder Singh

Srinagar, Feb 7 (IANS) Disgraced Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Davinder Singh who was sent to 15-day judicial custody, will be put up in a Kathua jail instead of a Jammu one, after he raised “threat to life” alarms.

According to sources Singh pleaded for sending him to the Heeranagar jail and told that there is a threat to his life in the Kotbalwal Jail which housed militants who were arrested in operations led by him.

A Special NIA court in Jammu on Thursday sent Singh and four others to judicial custody.

Singh was on Friday sent to the Heeranagar jail while the other four, including Hizbual Mujahideen commander Naveed Babu have been put up in the Kotbalwal jail in Jammu.

According to sources, the NIA is carrying out investigations after raids at multiple locations, including Singh’s residences in Kashmir.

Sources indicate that questioning of Singh will be done in Jammu and there was no plan to shift him to Delhi for now.

They also said that Singh’s phone is being examined for extracting deleted WhatsApp chat.

On January 11, police arrested Davinder Singh from the Jammu-Srinagar national highway while he was transporting militants Naveed, Rafi and Irfan to Jammu.

After initial investigations by the Jammu and Kashmir Police, the case was handed to the National Investigation Agency.

Police sources had said that the two terrorists and lawyer Irfan had planned a travel to Pakistan.

Singh was earlier shifted from Srinagar to Jammu on a transit remand where an NIA team questioned him. After his arrest by the police, multiple raids were conducted at his residences in Srinagar.

Singh was posted with the anti-hijacking wing of Jammu and Kashmir Police in Srinagar, and was part of the security staff that had received a group of foreign diplomats who visited Kashmir last month.

Farooq Abdullah

Srinagar, July 13 : Jammu and Kashmir National Conference (NC) President and Srinagar MP Farooq Abdullah and his son and party Vice President Omar Abdullah on Monday filed a habeas corpus petition in the high court challenging the ”unconstitutional and ”illegal house detention of 16 NC leaders and functionaries.

As per the statement issued from the party headquarters, Farooq Abdullah has filed a petition for the release of Ali Mohammad Sagar, Abdul Rahim Rather, Nasir Aslam Wani, Aga Syed Mehmood, Mohammad Khalil Bandh, Irfan Shah and Sahmeema Firdous from house detention, while Omar Abdullah has challenged the detention of Mohammad Shafi Uri, Aga Syed Ruhullah Mehdi, Chaudhary Mohammad Ramzaan, Mubarak Gul, Bashir Veeri, Abdul Majeed Larmi, Basharat Bukhari, Saifudin Bhat Shutru and Mohammad Shafi through their counsel advocate Shariq Reyaz.

Party spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar said the decision to move to the court has been taken as a last resort to provide relief to various party members who have continuously been under house arrest or have been kept under house detention after being shifted from detention centers.

“Shifting of the detainees from detention centers to their homes only characterised revolving-door detention practice. Quashing of the PSA on party General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar underscored the indefensible nature of all detentions in the court of law, leading us to believe that the administration will release all the detainees in the absence of any convincing reason.

Unfortunately that was not to be. The house detentions without any administrative orders are unlawful, undermining the due respect to human rights and individual liberty,” he said.

“We are hopeful that the court will come to the rescue of our colleagues, who have been suffering for no fault of theirs ever since the abrogation of Article 370 and Article 35-A on August 5, 2019. This was the only recourse left to us. We are hopeful that the court will uphold the civil liberties of our colleagues, most of whom have not been keeping well,” Dar said.
