Three persons were booked under public safety act (PSA) in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Monday.

A police official from the district said Danish Rashid Bhat, Hilal Ahmad Ahangir and Faisul Ahmad hailing from Drabgam, Karimabad and Pirchoo villages respectively were booked under the act. 

He said the trio was booked under PSA for participating in stone throwing on forces and working as militant ‘Over Ground Workers’ (OGWs).

Incidentally, Bhat happens to be a cousin of slain militant commander Sameer Tiger. He (Bhat) had quit militancy on insistence of his family after joining Hizb, said a Bhat’s relative.

Confirming the arrests, Senior Superintendent of Police(SSP) Pulwama Mohammad Aslam Choudhary said the trio was involved in anti state activities. “They were working as OGWs for militants. They would mobilize youth to throw stones on forces," he said.
