Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s daughter said that she is sure that the Centre is not in favour of releasing political detainees in Jammu and Kashmir.
Quoting a news report on Twitter about an extension of Farooq Abdullah’s detention, Mufti said that the Narendra Modi government is not planning to release three former chief ministers of erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir state – Dr Farooq Abdullah, his son Omar and Mehbooba Mufti.
“One can be quite certain GOI has no plans to release any political detainees inc 3 former CMs. Normalcy roulette continues,” Iltija wrote on her Mothers twitter handle.

As the Peoples Democratic Party chief has been in detention since August 5, when the special status of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 was scrapped, her daughter Iltija Mufti operates her social media accounts.
Several mainstream leaders including Dr Farooq Abdullah, his son Omar Abdullah and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti were put under house arrest following the abrogation of Article 370 in August this year that granted special powers to Jammu and Kashmir.
The government has decided to extend the house detention of Farooq Abdullah for another three months under the stringent Public Safety Act. The three-term chief minister of the erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir state would continue to remain at his residence which has been declared a sub-jail.(ANI)
