According to media sources, the court directed the authorities to file compliance report in light of its earlier directions within two weeks. “The authorities shall be at liberty to file the counter affidavit within the same period,” the court added.

On June 7, this year, the court had directed the authorities to consider shifting of Masarrat Aalam to any jail in the Kashmir Valley after his counsel Advocate Mian Tufail pleaded that the lodgment of the detainee at Jammu jail was against decisions handed down by the judiciary in the past.

The directions had come after the court heard the petition challenging his latest detention under draconian Public Safety Act (PSA).
