Sajad Lone Set Free, Finally

SRINAGAR: Authorities have finally set free Sajad Lone, the Peoples Conference president. He was arrested on the eve of August 5, 2019. Early this year he was shifted to his official residence where he was kept under detention.

Interestingly, it was Sajad who announced his release personally using twitter almost a year after.

Sajad’s release came on the eve of Eid. It also coincided with the controversy over Prof Saifuddin Soz’s arrest that the government denied in the Supreme Court.

One of Lone’s party activists said he has been informed at his Church Lane jail that he is free. “He is still there and has not started for home,” he said. He said he will share more details as and when he meets his leader.

Interestingly, the last tweet of Lone – who was a cabinet minister in BJPDP government, was on August 5. Almost a few days short of a year, he tweeted again.
