Release Mehbooba Mufti, Others From Detention: Omar Abdullah

Mumbai: After released from house arrest former J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has expressed hope that PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti and others will be released from detention as well.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Omar Abdullah said, “It’s callous and cruel to continue to detain Mehbooba Mufti and others at a time like this. There was never much justification to detain everyone in the 1st place and none at all to keep them detained as the country enters a 3-week lockdown. I hope @PMOIndia and @HMOIndia will release them.”

The Jammu and Kashmir administration had enacted the Public Safety Act (PSA) against former chief ministers Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah on 5 February. Both were taken into custody after the Central Government repealed Section 370 last year.

Omar Abdullah was released on Tuesday after being detained in Srinagar for over seven months.

Abdullah was among several political leaders who were placed under house arrest by the Central Government after repealing Article 370 of the Constitution giving special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

While Omar Abdullah’s father Farooq Abdullah was released earlier this month, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti is still under house arrest.
