Srinagar: Two days after noted religious clerics, Moulana Abdul Rasheed Dawoodi and Mushtaq Ahmad Veeri were booked under PSA, now another popular religious preacher Sarjan Barkati has been arrested in the Shopian district.

One of the family members of Barkati told the news agency Kashmir News Observer that he was arrested by police today morning at around 6:45 am.

He said that since he was released in 2020, he hasn’t taken part in protests, hasn’t delivered any speech and they are unable to understand why he has been arrested now.

Notably, Barkati was released after four years of detention in October 2020 after he was arrested during the uprising following the killing of Hizb commander Burhan Wani in 2016. (KNO)
