ISLAMABAD: In occupied Kashmir, a court in Handwara has sent illegally detained senior APHC leader and Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League, Masarrat Aalam Butt on a two-day police remand.

Indian police had rearrested Masarrat Aalam Butt from the premises of Kot Bhalwal Jail in Jammu a few days back after the High Court of the occupied territory quashed his detention under black law, Public Safety Act.

Masarrat Aalam Butt is undergoing continued detention since October 18, 2010 after he was arrested for spearheading the mass uprising that year.
