Srinagar: Prominent religious cleric and vice-president of Jamiat-e-Ahle Hadith, J&K, Mushtaq Ahmad Veeri, was released from detention on Saturday, Kashmir News Observer (KNO) reported.
A relative of Veeri confirmed that he has reached home where locals and relatives welcomed him.
Veeri was arrested on February 24 last year following a ban and crackdown on Jamaat-e-Islami — Kashmir’s largest socio-religious organisation. He was later booked under Public Safety Act (PSA) and shifted to Kot Balwal Jail in Jammu.
Pertinently, Veeri has been released a few days after the release of cleric Sarjan Ahmad Barkati. KNO
