No favour done: Masarat Alam


Jammu: Kashmiri Separitist leader Masarat Alam, who was released yesterday after four and a half years of detention, today said the PDP-BJP government had done him no favour as his release was part of normal judicial process.

Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Youth Congress (JKPYC) on Sunday held here protest demonstrations against the release of top separatist leader Masarat Alam and sought reply from the Prime Minister, Union Home Minister and RSS over the issue.

Despite being a Sunday, officials of the Kashmir division in the Home Ministry worked overtime to gather all facts from the state government on the issue which has led to strain in the PDP-BJP alliance.

The ministry wanted to know the reasons that led to release of 44-year-old Alam, who spearheaded 2010 agitation, from the Baramulla jail last night.
