Srinagar: Two former chief ministers of the state, NC leader Omar Abdullah and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti have been detained after the Centre abolished Section 370 from Jammu and Kashmir. Meanwhile, there were reports that some talks have taken place between former CM Omar Abdullah and the Centre. However, his party NC has rejected it. There were reports that some officials of the investigating agencies have contacted Abdullah and PDP leader and former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.
The government's approach to these leaders is expected to revive the political dialogue in the Kashmir Valley. The valley has been under restrictions for about three weeks. There is absolutely no basis for such reports," a National Conference leader said here. As of now, no decision has been taken on the release of the two. It was also recently stated that any decision on the release of the detained leaders would depend on the opinion of the local administration and the situation there.
An official had indicated that there was no hurry in the matter. Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti have been detained at separate guest houses in Srinagar, while former Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah is under house arrest. The Centre is looking into all options to restore normalcy in the valley.
