All 34 detained leaders lodged at Srinagar's Centaur Hotel shifted

Early Times Report
srinagar, Nov 17: All 34 detained politicians in Jammu and Kashmir since the abrogation of Article 370 on August 5 have been shifted to a new location in view of the harsh winter.
The development comes a day after former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister was shifted to a warmer location following her daughter's appeal. The PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti was shifted to Srinagar's Lal Chowk from Chashme Shahi guesthouse.
Now, all 34 political leaders who were detained at Centaur Hotel in Srinagar have been moved to MLA Hostel at M.A Road as the hotel in which they are currently staying lacks proper heating arrangements.
Ali Mohammad Sagar, Salman Sagar, Sajjad Lone, Yassir Reshi, Shah Faesal, Dr. Veeri NC, Wahid Para and many others who were detained earlier have been shifted today.
It is worth mentioning that the winter chill was already starting to affect the health of detained political leaders from the National Conference, PDP, and other prominent social activists.
They were lodged at the Centaur hotel on the bank of Dal Lake since August 5 when the Union government announced its decision to abrogate Article 370 and split the state into two Union territories.
Kashmir Valley, including Srinagar city, was reeling under winter chill and witnessed the season's first snowfall earlier this month.
The seat of administration in the newly created Union territory has moved from Srinagar to Jammu for the winter months.
The administration carried out the required modification of rooms in the MLA Hostel on Maulana Azad Road in the heart of the city to accommodate the political prisoners. It has been declared as a subsidiary jail by an order of the J-K home department.
Among the political prisoners are Sajjad Lone of People's Conference (PC), Ali Mohammad Sagar of National Conference (NC), Naem Akhtar of the PDP and former IAS officer Shah Faesal.
The move was necessitated as the approaching winters and frequent power cuts made it difficult to stay in the hut which was converted into jail after she was detained on August 5 this year.
According to the officials privy to the development, Centaur Hotel, owned by the Indian Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC), has submitted a bill of nearly Rs 3 crore to the home department for over 100 days of boarding and lodging of the detained politicians and acitivists.
The administration has, however, rejected the claims of Centaur Hotel and argued that the facility was converted into a subsidiary jail on August 5 and therefore, government rates would be paid.
The rates sanctioned by the administration would be around Rs 800 per day as against Rs 5,000 charged by the hotel, the officials said.
