Srinagar, Sep 24 (UNI) A high-level committee will review the cases of persons detained under Public Safety Act (PSA) in Jammu and Kashmir.

This information was given during a meeting chaired by Governor N N Vohra here last evening, an official spokesman said.

The cases of those who were in custody in connection with terrorism-related activities would also be reviewed.

He said a high-level Review Committee, including representatives of the Union Home Ministry, will be meeting towards the end of this week to undertake this exercise.

Official sources said those not involved in any serious militancy-related incidents would be released on the occasion of Eid-ul-fitr.

However, it was not immediately clear if the cases of those arrested during recent two-month-long agitation over Shri Amarnath land row would also be reviewed by the committee.

Meanwhile, Mr Vohra appealed to all sections of the society in the State to cooperate in maintaining normalcy, so that the functioning of the Government offices, business-related activities, working in the Courts, educational institutions and harvesting of crops was not adversely affected.

The Government had reiterated its appeal for calls not being issued to observe hartals, bandhs and marches, as they put life out of gear and result in enormous sufferings to the people at large and daily wage earners in particular.
