Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti today claimed that she has been ‘illegally detained’. She said that she was not allowed to visit her party leader Waheed Ur Rehman, who has been in custody over his alleged links with a terror outfit. “I have been illegally detained yet again. Since two days, the J & K admin has refused to allow me to visit @parawahid’s family in Pulwama,” Mehbooba Mufti said.

Targeting the Centre, the PDP chief further said that BJP Ministers and their puppets were allowed to move around in every corner of Kashmir but security was a problem only in her case. “Their cruelty knows no bounds. Waheed was arrested on baseless charges and I am not allowed to even console his family. Even my daughter Iltija has been placed under house arrest because she also wanted to visit Waheed’s family,” the former chief minister said.

Mufti said that she will hold a press conference at 3:00 pm today and will brief the press on various issues.

Commenting on Mufti’s tweet in which a truck can be seen at a gate, former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said that parking a truck in front of their gates was now standard operating procedure for the administration. “They did the same to my father recently to stop him from praying. Personal liberty is treated as a favour by the govt, to give & withdraw at will, with no interference from the judiciary,” National Conference’s Omar Abdullah said.
