Headlines: Now, Mehbooba Mufti, Omar Abdullah Charged Under Public Safety Act

Hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Parliament said statements made by three former chief ministers of Jammu and Kashmir on the abrogation of provisions of Article 370 are not acceptable, National Conference (NC) leader Omar Abdullah and Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Mehbooba Mufti were booked under stringent provisions of the Public Safety Act (PSA).
The move came barely hours before their six-month-long “preventive detention” was to come to an end.
Farooq Abdullah, Omar’s father, was booked under the PSA last September, which was reviewed again in December and extended for three months.
Officials of the Jammu and Kashmir administration in Srinagar said a magistrate, accompanied by the police, served the order to Mufti at the government accommodation that has been converted into a subsidiary jail. #MehboobaMufti #OmarAbdullah #PSA
