Srinagar: The J&K High Court Wednesday quashed sixth PSA detention order against Assadullah Parray, a Muslim League associate who has been behind bars since 21 August, 2015.
The judgment was passed by the justice Ali Mohammad Magray.
Though the court had already quashed five PSAs brought previously against him in succession, he was not released and was slapped with a fresh detention.
The detention order was passed by District Magistrate Bandipora under section 8 (a) of the Jammu and Kashmir Public Safety Act, 1978.
Parray’s six children are surviving on hard means.
The children have already lost their mother in 2012 and father has remained in jail much of the time since.
One of Parray’s daughters is suffering from a skin disease that requires her to visit hospital for treatment. Another daughter is suffering from trauma and is also on medication.
