A League spokesperson Sajjad Ayoubi in a statement issued to GNS said Aalam was produced on Saturday before Additional District and SesÂsions Judge where after hearÂing the arguments; the judge fixed the next hearing of the said case on 4 July 2018. After hearing, Maasrat was taken back to Kot Bhalwal Jail Jammu, he said adding that proÂlonging the 'illegal' detention of the incarcerated leader showed the 'frustration' of authorities. He said Aalam has been imÂplicated in 'fictitious' cases and he continues to languish in jails, which is 'worst form of human rights violation'. 'Government instead of honÂouring the court orders is ignorÂing all norms and rules. Alam is being subjected to political venÂdetta,' the spokesperson said, adding, 'The policy adopted by India through which Masarat sahib is being moved from one police station to another cannot break his will and courage.' The League spokesperson apÂpealed the rights defender bodies including the Red Cross and HuÂman Rights Watch to take note of the 'worst political revenge against Masarat Aalam and his illegal deÂtention' and asked them to play their role in this regard.
