Adv Hassan Babur Nehru, leader of Anjuman-e-Islamia Doda, was arrested by J&K police on Saturday late night around 10 pm from Mohallah Sah, Faridabad Doda.
He has been booked under “notorious” PSA and sent to Central jail.
Police have lodged more than 3 FIRs against him in anti-national activities.
Babur, a popular social and human rights activist, was a practicing lawyer who mostly pleaded the cases of deprived people to ensure them the social and human rights.
He used to highlight a diverse range of social as well as developmental issues of the Chenab valley region.
As a social activist, his service towards the people of far flung and poor backgrounds has been commendable.
He used to lead various processions, protests and Dharnas regarding various socio-political issues raising the genuine demands of the public.
Among his daily routines, making people aware about their basic human, social, political and religious rights were priority. He was emerging as a popular leader of the masses opposing “any wrong policy”.
“This act was disliked by various government agencies and every now and then he was unnecessarily harassed by the police,” claimed his family members.
