The statement further stated that bail petitions were rejected by the CJM Court Kishtwar. The bail plea of the accused lady was argued by a battery of lawyers, wherein Police and prosecution officers contested logically for rejection of the Bail application as the case is of public interest.
Latter on Hon’ble Session Court granted bail in favour of the said lady. The normal law against her will not have the desired result of stopping her from indulging in further such illegal acts. Therefore normal law which has been invoked against the subject is not sufficient to deter the subject from indulging further in such type of crimes, they said.
Keeping in view all the circumstances, said lady has been detained under PSA after obtaining a PSA warrant from the concerned authorities for her involvement in the kidnapping case of an Infant male baby namely Afnan Ahmed son of Afreen Ahmed resident of Chirala At present Link Road Kishtwar. They said Lady Shabnam has been lodged in District Jail Kutha, they said.
Meanwhile, SSP Kishtwar Shafqat Hussain Bath-JKPS time and again requested the general public to be aware not to fall prey to such type of crime and report any such suspicious or fraudulent activity in your neighbourhood immediately to the concerned Police station, reads the statement.
