Jammu: Separatist leader Masrat Alam was re-arrested outside Kot Bhalwal Jail here late Tuesday evening after he was released on the Jammu and Kashmir High Court quashing his detention under Public Safety Act (PSA).
“Masrat Alam was re-arrested late last evening outside Kot Bhalwal Jail,” a senior police officer told Media Sources on Wednesday.
Alam was earlier released from the jail after his detention under PSA was quashed by a single-judge bench of the Jammu and Kashmir High Court headed by Justice M.H. Attar.
Alam was arrested under the PSA on April 17 in Srinagar after he organised and led a separatist rally to receive senior hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani.
