Faesal was detained from Delhi, sent back to Srinagar
Unlike other mainstream politicians, Faesal was not arrested from Kashmir but Delhi. On August 14, he was held from Delhi Airport before he could take a flight to go abroad.
The Intelligence Bureau had issued a Look Out Circular against him on August 12. Faesal's version that he was going for studies was dismissed by authorities.
They said he was traveling on a tourist visa.
Reportedly, Faesal will stay at MLA Hostel
After initially being sent to Centaur Hotel, Faesal was detained at MLA Hostel. Officials said he will remain at the latter establishment.
Defending its decision to detain Faesal, the administration of the newly-formed union territory said the 36-year-old was instigating people at Srinagar airport "against the sovereignty and integrity of the country".
Faesal has been quite vocal against the historic decision.
Faesal said "constitutionalists" are gone with Article 370
"Kashmir will need a long, sustained, non-violent political mass movement for restoration of political rights. Abolition of Article 370 has finished the mainstream. Constitutionalists are gone. So you can either be a stooge or a separatist now. No shades of grey," he tweeted in August.
