Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president and former chief minister of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti was released from detention late last night, more than a year after the abrogation of Article 370.
Confirming her release, JK government spokesman Rohit Kansal tweeted “Ms. Mehbooba Mufti being released.”
Mufti was among the leaders taken into custody ahead of the historic move last August, when the Centre announced its decisions to revoke Article 370 that accorded special status to Jammu and Kashmir. The state was then bifurcated into two Union territories.
After her freedom returned, Mufti vowed to "take back what Delhi has snatched."
