A petition challenging the detention of National Conference general secretary Haji Ali Muhammad Sagar who is under detention since 5th of August 2019 has been filed in the High Court.
Sagar’s son, Ishfaq Sagar has filed a plea in high court challenging the detention of Ali Mohammad Sagar under the Public Safety Act in High court.
In a statement, National Conference provincial spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar said, “We have always maintained that the Sagar’s detention is undemocratic, illegal. The government has no right to deprive a citizen of his liberty, even one moment without the authority of law. Having him inside is disrespectful to people whom he has represented and made laws for. When the world is going through worst of public health nightmare, which requires social distancing and proper sanitation, his protracted incarceration has added to the concerns of his family and well-wishers,” adding, “The measure reveals the horrible and perturbing indifference of the present ruling dispensation for basic human rights. He has some pre-existing health issues thereby making him more vulnerable to Covid19. The family of the incarcerated leader has to go through tough times in meeting him.”
