The order has been issued to release the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti. Jammu and Kashmir government spokesman Rohit Kansal has informed that former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti is being released. Mehbooba Mufti was placed under house arrest on August 4 last year, when the central government split the state of Jammu and Kashmir and took away its special status.

It goes on to say that at the end of last month, a petition filed against Mehbooba Mufti’s daughter Iltija Mufti’s Public Security Act (PSA) against the arrest of her mother was heard in the Supreme Court. On which the Supreme Court had asked the Jammu and Kashmir administration, how long can Mehbooba be kept in custody? The court had asked the Jammu and Kashmir administration to give information about its stand.
Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and his father Farooq Abdullah, who were under house arrest since August last year, have already been released. The Mufti was detained at his home, which was declared an “auxiliary prison” by the government. Under the Public Safety Act or PSA, a person can be detained several times without any trial.❐
