While NC leader Omar Abdullah was released by SC after a warning, ex-CM Mehbooba Mufti is still under detention. J&K Bar Council chief Mian Qayoom's legal battle went on for over 10 months.
According to an MHA order, Mufti will remain under detention at her official residence, Fairview Bungalow, which has been declared a subsidiary jail.
Omar Abdullah says it’s ‘malicious and false’ to link his release to what Sachin Pilot is doing. CM Bhupesh Baghel responds, saying he has only asked a question and will ‘keep asking it’.
There's been no word on Article 370 from Farooq and Omar Abdullah, released from detention, or Mehbooba Mufti, who is otherwise vocal on Twitter. Analysts say they must make position clear.
Before shifting Mufti, the government accorded status of subsidiary jail to her official residence with immediate effect.
NC's Anantnag MP Hasnain Masoodi and Mehbooba Mufti's daughter Iltija have sought revocation of detention orders against Kashmiris lodged in jails since August 2019.
PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti’s daughter Iltija also described Farooq Abdullah’s visit to their house as a courtesy visit and said she appreciated the gesture.
Release of NC leader Farooq Abdullah marked the beginning of the second phase, in which Modi govt wants to engage with politicians beyond the ‘old guard’.
It is not surprising that Altaf Bukhari wants to follow Bakshi Ghulam Mohammad’s simplistic political maxim – be on the good side of New Delhi, and rule. But will it work?
Mehbooba's daughter Iltija had filed a habeas corpus petition in the apex court challenging the govt's order issued on 5 February, detaining her mother under PSA.
