Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senior leader and former minister, Naeem Akhtar was on Thursday released from house detention, reported a local news agency, Kashmir News Observer (KNO).

Mr. Akhtar remained under preventive detention since 5 August last year when the government abrogated Article 370 and bifurcated the erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir state into two Union Territories.

Mr. Akhtar in a tweet said that he was informed today that he is free to move now. “After 407 days of detention am informed that I am free to move about. Thank you rulers for small mercies while you inflict larger tragedies on our land,” he tweeted.

Several leaders including the former chief ministers of J-K  were detained by the government on 5 August last year and were later released while PDP president Mehbooba Mufti continues to remain under house detention at her Gupkar residence. (KNO)
