Mohammad Amin, a resident of Badhoon village, has been booked and detained under PSA on the orders of district magistrate, senior superintendent of police, Rajouri, Yougal Manhas said.
“Amin was found involved in bovine smuggling and thus threatening the peaceful atmosphere forcing authorities to detain him under the PSA,” he said.
The SSP said Amin was accused in four separate FIRs registered in Rajouri Police Station since last year.
“A dossier for his detention was submitted to the district magistrate, who in turn issued the order which was implemented today,” Manhas said.
