Warrants against G. M. Shah, 8 others

JAMMU, Feb 4 (PTI) A TADA court here has issued arrest warrants against former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister G. M. Shah and eight others and ordered bailable arrest warrants against three Hurriyat Conference leaders for allegedly raising anti-national slogans at a public meeting in Srinagar in 1987.

The District and Sessions Judge, Mr Sain Dass yesterday issued bailable arrest warrants to Hurriyat leaders, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Abdul Gani Lone and Mohammad Yasin Malik, who are facing trial in the TADA court but were not appearing before it.

The accused have been charged with raising anti-national slogans and delivering provocative speeches at a public meeting organised by the Muslim United Front (MUF) at the Iqbal Park in Srinagar on August 20, 1987.

While initiating the proceedings under Section 512 of the CrPC (declared offenders), Mr Justice Dass observed that the SHO of Shargahri police station appeared in the court and recorded statements that the accused persons were not available, while others against whom bailable warrants were issued were outside the state.

On the statement of the SHO, the court took cognisance and issued warrants for securing the presence of all accused in the court. The next date of hearing has been fixed on March 5.
