Authorities on Thursday arrested two PDP leaders, Najmu Saqib and Suhail Bukhari, the party President Mehbooba Mufti said.
Taking to her Twitter handle, the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir said, “Again under house arrest & PDPs @SAAQQIIB & @Suhail_Bukhari too have been arrested. The pattern of using innocent civilians as human shields & then denying their families the right to a decent burial shows that GOI has plumbed new depths of inhumanity.”

The Jammu and Kashmir administration on Thursday ordered a magisterial probe into the Hyderpora encounter
