Srinagar | Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad was on Thursday stopped at Srinagar Airport, reported news agency ANI.
The reason for the obstruction is yet to be determined.
Earlier today, Ghulam Nabi Azad made a remark on National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, which was heavily criticised by the BJP.
However, heavy security has been deployed in the newly-formed Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
All of the local leaders, including former Chief Ministers Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah, have been placed under house arrest.
The events have followed after the Centre decided to revoke Article 370, which gave special status to the state. The President has also approved the Bifurcation Bill, which divides the state into two Union Territories — Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.
All the communication lines have been cut- including landline phones and the internet, along with Section 144 and a curfew.
