The offices of Power Development Department and Crime Branch at Jehangir Chowk were burnt down by unknown persons on that day.

Mushtaq-ul-Islam was produced before the court by the personnel from Kothi Bagh Police Station in connection with the case. The court directed the prosecution to keep Mushtaq in Kothi Bagh Police Station and produce him before it on Monday.

Mushtaq’s aged mother, Raja, who was also present in the court, said that the police was not allowing her to meet her son. “Policemen told me that he was not in Kralkhud Police Station when I approached them soon after knowing that my son has been kept there,” she said.

Advocates Nazir Ahmed Ronga, Ghulam Nabi Shaheen, Mir Shafaqat Hussain and Mir Urfi, represented Mushtaq-ul-Islam in the court.

Mushtaq was rearrested on April 18, this year, after District Magistrate Srinagar issued his release orders.
