Jammu and Kashmir state assembly Speaker Kavinder Gupta on Monday ordered an inquiry into the detention of a minor under the Public Safety Act (PSA).

The Speaker's order came after Independent MLA Engineer Rashid waved copies of the school record in the assembly indicating that Sahil Ahmad Sheikh, detained under PSA during last year's unrest, was a minor.



CPI-M leader M.Y. Tarigami also intervened saying that the matter was serious and all such cases concerning detention of minors under PSA needed to be thoroughly probed.

Rural Development Minister Abdul Haq Khan asked Rashid to hand over the school record to the government.

Under PSA, a law applicable only in Jammu and Kashmir, a person can be detained without trial for a period of two years by an order of the District Magistrate.
