   The incarcerated chairman of Muslim League Jammu Kashmir Masarat Alam Bhat was on Wednesday shifted to Hira Nagar jail Jammu after authorities booked him under the fresh Public Safety Act (PSA).
The fresh orders, incidentally 37th in the series, were passed Wednesday morning by the Deputy Commissioner, Baramulla, a spokesperson of the League Sajad Ayoubi said.
He said Alam was brought to JIC Jammu a few days ago, and in the meantime a fresh PSA – which is 37th in a row – was slapped on him.
After being slapped with 37th PSA, which is a world record, Masarat Alam was shifted to Hira Nagar Jail in Jammu, Ayoubi said.

Strongly condemning the slapping of continuous PSAs on Alam, the spokesperson said there is “Jungle Raj” prevailing in Jammu Kashmir. “Nowhere in the world does anybody face such a criminal law,” he added.
Ayoubi said “authorities are not honouring the court orders as if they have no sanctity”.
“Masarat Alam is being subjected to political vengeance by being shifted from one jail to another. This won’t break his resolve,” he said.

Masarat Alam, who spearheaded the 2010 agitation, was arrested in October same year.
