Lawyer of jailed Hurriyat (G) leader Masarat Alam, Shabir Ahmed Bhat has alleged that the government is using Public Safety Act as a tactic to keep Alam behind bars. “The government failed to produce any evidences against Masrat Aalam during the trial in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Budgam on Wednesday and the chances were bright that he would be bailed out on Saturday.
