Former Indian Administrative Service officer Shah Faesal was sent back to Kashmir from the Delhi airport and detained in Srinagar under the Public Safety Act, officials said.

Faesal, who was bound for Istanbul, was detained at the airport on Wednesday morning, they said. The former bureaucrat from Jammu & Kashmir had floated a political outfit after resigning from the IAS.

After being detained at the Delhi airport, he was again detained under the PSA on his arrival in Srinagar, the officials said.

Post the removal of special status to Jammu & Kashmir, provided under Article 370, Faesal had said Kashmir is experiencing an "unprecedented" lockdown and its eight million population "incarcerated" like never before.

He is the president of the J&K Peoples Movement party.
