'124 released, 77 still under detention'

Jammu, Jan 12 (KNS): The government on Friday said that 525 persons were detained under PSA during the year 2016.
In a written reply to a question in the State Assembly, the government said in the year 2017, 201 persons were detained under PSA, out of which 124 persons have been released and 77 are still under preventive detention.
