Srinagar: PDP president Mehbooba Mufti and former Chief Minister has been released after nearly 14 months of detention, government said on Tuesday.
“Ms. Mehbooba Mufti being released,” Rohit Kansal, government spokesman said in a tweet. Sources said that she was released later.
Mehbooba was among hundreds of people detained in 2019 to prevent protests against the Government of India’s move to divest J&K of its special status through the nullification of the Constitution’s Article 370 and to divide state into two Union territories.
