Former J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti’s Detention Under PSA Extended By 3 Months

A few months back, in view of the Corona crisis, People’s Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti was shifted from temporary jail to her house.

 

Srinagar| The custody of former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti was further extended for three months on Friday. She has been placed under house arrest under the Public Safety Act. Mufti has been in custody since the removal of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir last year on August 5.

In early May, Mufti’s detention under the PSA was further extended for three months. This period was coming to an end but before that, it has been extended. A few months back, in view of the Corona crisis, Mufti was shifted from temporary jail to her house.

Earlier, Sajjad Lone, leader of the People’s Conference, was released by the government on Friday. Lone was also detained at the time of Article 370 being removed. Lone had tweeted the news of his release. He had said that five days before the completion of one year of abrogation of Article 370, he was officially freed.

In August last year, Article 370 of the Indian Constitution giving special status to Jammu and Kashmir was nullified by the Modi government. Hundreds of state leaders were detained prior to this decision. With the situation returning to normal, most people have been released. Mehbooba Mufti has also run a coalition government in the state with BJP.
