Srinagar: The government of Jammu and Kashmir has shifted former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti to her residence, turning it as subsidiary jail.

After eight months of  detention,  Ms. Mufti, who is the President of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was to her Gupkar residence where she will remain under detention. Her Gupkar residence has been declared as a subsidiary jail.

“In exercise of the powers conferred by clause (b)  of section 2 of the Prisoners Act, 1990, the government hereby declares Fairview, Gupkar Road, Srinagar as “Subsidiary Jail”,” an order issued by Principal Secretary to Government, Shaleen Kabra, reads.

Ms. Mufti was detained on 4 August, last year,  when the central government abrogated the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the erstwhile state into two Union Territories.

Meanwhile, former chief minister and National Conference vice president, Omar Abdullah in his tweet said that Ms. Mufti must be released fully.

“@MehboobaMufti must be set free. Shifting her home while continuing to keep her detained is a cop out,” Omar tweeted.
