Srinagar: On a day, when authorities freed Chairman Jammu Kashmir Peoples Conference Sajad Lone, it extended the detention period of former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti by 3 more months under contentious Public Safety Act.

Principal Secretary Home, Shaleen Kabra in this regard has issued a formal order, that talks about the extension in the detention period of Ms. Mufti.

The Peoples Democratic Party leader was initially detained on 5 August last year when the Government of India did away with the special status of the erstwhile state and bifurcated it into two union territories-Ladakh, and Jammu and Kashmir.

Having spent over eight months in detention at two government facilities that were designated as sub-jails, Ms. Mufti was shifted to her home on 7 April this year.

Her party was in power in Jammu and Kashmir in alliance with the BJP till June 2018.

Initially, she was taken into preventive custody. Later on February 5 this year, she was slapped with the PSA along with Omar Abdullah, who was released in March. Farooq Abdullah has also been released. (KNT)
