A Kashmiri youth is lodged in a jail  in Durg, Chhattisgarh, since August 3, on charges of sedition for allegedly liking a Facebook post that made fun of India. He has been refused bail twice and on Oct 4 when it  came up again a judge of the High Court reserved his orders on Tauseef Bhat’s bail application. The judge was disinclined to grant bail because of the grave charge, said Bhat’s advocate. “The judge asked if we wanted to turn Chhattisgarh into another Kashmir and said he wouldn’t allow it to happen,” he told The Hoot.
