Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah, who was released earlier today has said that he will not speak on political matters until everyone else is released.

“I will not speak on political matters until everyone else is released,” said the National Conference leader, who was flanked by his family members.

Abdullah who was released after over seven months in custody, said: “I have no words, today I am free, I am free.”

He was detained under the Public Safety Act or PSA, a stringent law that allows detention without trial.

Farooq Abdullah was detained along with several leaders including his son Omar Abdullah and PDP’s Mehbooba Mufti on 5 August, when the government ended special status to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 and imposed massive security restrictions and a communication lockdown.
