Former IAS officer Shah Faesal was detained by authorities at the Delhi airport today and sent back to Kashmir, officials said.
Faesal was again detained under the Public Safety Act (PSA) on his arrival in Srinagar, they said. He was bound for Istanbul, the officials added.
The former bureaucrat from Jammu and Kashmir had floated a political outfit after resigning from the Indian Administrative Service (IAS). He is the president of the J&K Peoples Movement party.
Post the removal of special status to Jammu and Kashmir, provided under Article 370, Faesal had said Kashmir is experiencing an “unprecedented” lockdown and its eight million population “incarcerated” like never before.
