Srinagar: A legislator from north Kashmir, along with a few of his supporters, was detained today after he took out a protest march here in support of Article 35-A of the Constitution.

Sheikh Abdul Rasheed, an Independent MLA representing the Langate constituency in north Kashmir, along with the supporters of his Awami Ittehad Party (AIP), assembled near the Sher-e-Kashmir park here and marched towards Lal Chowk, a police official said.

He added that the protesters were shouting slogans in favour of Article 35-A and in support of the Muslims living in the Jammu region.

As the march reached near the Press Enclave, a posse of policemen stopped the protesters and asked them to disperse peacefully, the official said.

However, the protesters tried to march further towards the Ghanta Ghar (clock tower), forcing the police to take few of them, including Rasheed, into custody, he added.
