Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir government on Wednesday said 92 people were booked under Public Safety Act (PSA) for their alleged involvement in timber smuggling in the last two years in the state.

"While 64 of them were booked under PSA during 2009-10, 28 were booked in 2010-11," Forest Minister Mian Altaf told reporters here.

The minister said 151 vehicles and 1,620 horses used in timber smuggling were also seized from various forest areas in the last two years.

PSA is a tough law which allows detention of a person without trial for two years.
