A man was booked under the stringent Public Safety Act for his alleged involvement in unlawful activities that posed a threat to peace and order in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district, police said.

Mohammad Azam, a resident of Pukharni in Nowshera sub-division, was lodged in Rajouri district jail immediately after his arrest by police, a police spokesman said.

He said Azam’s detention order was issued by the Rajouri DM based on a detailed report submitted by the district police office.

A number of criminal cases were registered against the accused at the Nowshera police station between 2013 and 2021, the spokesman said, adding despite being booked in a number of FIRs, the accused was still not mending his ways and was involved in ”unlawful acts” and was posing a threat to peace and order.–(PTI)
