Mehbooba Mufti Being Set Free, Government

SRINAGAR: PDP President, Ms Mehbobba Mufti is being released, the spokesman of Jammu and Kashmir administration, Rohit Kansal said.

“Ms Mehbooba Mufti being released”, Kansal tweeted.

Ms Mufti is being held at her residence under Jammu and Kashmir Public Safety Act. She was arrested on August 5, 2019. Initially, she was kept at Cheshma Shahi and later shifted to MA Road. From there, she was sent home that was declared a sub-jail.

Ms Mufti’s daughter had approached the Supreme Court that had given time to Jammu and Kashmir administration to respond to their petition. Now she is being set free.

Welcoming the release of Mehbooba, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said, “I’m pleased to hear that  @MehboobaMufti Sahiba has been released after more than a year in detention. Her continued detention was a travesty & was against the basic tenets of democracy. Welcome out Mehbooba.”

People Conference Chairman Sajad Gani Lone also welcomed the release of Ms Mufti and said,“@MehboobaMufti has apparently been released. Great news. She has been through a very tough time. Wishing her all the best.”

Meanwhile, PDP spokesman in a tweet said, “Party president @MehboobaMufti would be addressing a press conference on Friday, 16th of October, 2020. Timing of the presser would be shared seperately. @Suhail_Bukhari.”
