New Delhi, December 7

Former head of Kashmir Chambers of Commerce Mubeen Shah, who was detained under the stringent Public Safety Act in the aftermath of the August 5 developments in Jammu and Kashmir, was released on Saturday after the Union Territory’s administration “temporarily released” him for three months, officials said.

Shah, a non-resident Indian who is based out of Malaysia, was released on Saturday morning after an order issued by the Home Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir was handed over to the jail authorities.

The order said he had been temporarily released for three months and should surrender on March 7, 2020.
