Former IAS officer Shah Faesal was detained at the Delhi airport on Wednesday and sent back to Kashmir.

The ex-IAS officer, who was reportedly stopped from leaving the country, has now been placed under house arrest in Kashmir.

The former IAS officer had earlier slammed the Centre saying that the Valley was experiencing an unprecedented lockdown and its eight million population "incarcerated" like never before.

"Kashmir is experiencing an unprecedented lock-down. From Zero Bridge to Airport some movement of vehicles is visible. Other places are completely out of bounds. Except for patients or those with a curfew pass," Faesal, the president of the J&K Peoples Movement party, said in a Facebook post.

"People are in shock. Numb. Yet to make sense of what befell them. Everyone is mourning what we lost. In my conversations with people besides 370, it's the loss of statehood that has hurt people deeply. This is being seen as the biggest betrayal by the Indian state in last 70 years," Shah Faesal had said in a Facebook post.

The former civil servant had said, My appeal has also been that let's stay alive, then we shall fight back.

He had also accused the international community of closing its eyes on Kashmir. "So I am not expecting anything from there. The sad fact of life is that only (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi and (Union Home Minister) Amit Shah can one day give back to us the wealth that has been stolen from us in broad daylight. But then what's lost has been lost. Or perhaps everything has been lost. Except our resolve to fight back. And we shall," Faesal added.
