In a significant operation, Kishtwar Police has initiated strict measures against hardcore OGWs (Over-Ground Workers) and sympathizers in the district, booking them under the Public Safety Act, 1978 (PSA). This proactive move is aimed at curbing anti-national activities and protecting the youth of Kishtwar from being lured into banned organizations.
The individuals in question are:
1. Zahoor-UI-Hassan Kamal, also known as Nikka Kamal, son of Wali Mohd Kamal, resident of Kamal Mohalla, Kishtwar.
2. Touseef-Ul-Nabi, son of Ghulam Nabi Gunna, living near Jamia Masjid, Kishtwar &
3. Raiz Ahmed*, son of Mohd Ramzan, from Sounder Dachhan, Tehsil Dachhan, District Kishtwar.
These individuals had previously been involved in various FIRs. Due to their continued engagement in anti-national activities and role in motivating local youths to join banned organizations, the imposition of the PSA was deemed necessary.
