Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti was released on October 13 after spending more than a year in detention. She had been detained on August 5, 2019 as the Central government announced its decision to scrap J&K's special status by diluting Article 370 of the Constitution. The PDP chief's release was announced on Twitter by J&K administration spokesperson Rohit Kansal. Mehbooba's daughter, who runs her Twitter account, confirmed the news. Former J&K CM and Mufti's political rival Omar Abdullah welcomed the development. Omar and his father Farooq Abdullah had also been detained last year. They were released in March. A plea challenging Mufti's detention was being heard by the Supreme Court. Watch the full video for more.
