Sons meet Omar Abdullah


After 67 days of detention, former Chief Minister of J&K Omar Abdullah on Friday was allowed to meet his two sons — Zamir (22) and Zahir (20), The Tribune reported.

Reports said that the duo arrived here on Friday morning and went to meet their father, who has been undergoing detention since August 5 at Hari Niwas, a guest house located on the foothills of the Zabarwan mountain range in Srinagar.

“They (sons of Omar) met their father for nearly four hours. We facilitated the meeting by carrying them from the airport to the Hari Niwas,” a security official told The Tribune.

However, they did not meet their grandfather, Farooq Abdullah, who is detained under the Public Safety Act at his residence on the Gupkar road, Srinagar, The Tribune quoted an official as saying.
