A youth has been detained under the Public Safety Act (PSA) in Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir and lodged in Kot Balwal jail, police said today.
A PSA detention warrant issued by the state Home Department against Khalid Parvez alias Junaid has been executed by Samba Police and he was arrested today, a police officer said.
The detenue has been lodged in the Central Jail Kot Balwal in Jammu, he said.
Two days ago, a notorious criminal, Sandeep Singh, was detained in Samba after a PSA warrant was issued against him from the District Magistrate, Samba. He was allegedly involved in a number of heinous criminal cases.
An order of detention under PSA is passed only when the detaining authority is satisfied that the activities of the person sought to be detained are prejudicial either to the maintenance of public order or to the security of the State.
