Mehbooba Mufti visits her father’s grave at Bijbehara
SC closes her detention case
Srinagar/New Delhi: Two days after her release, former chief minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president, Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday visited her father’s grave in south Kashmir’s Bijbehara town. She was accompanied by several party leaders.
A senior police official said that adequate security arrangements were made in the area in view of recent attacks in south Kashmir.
Mehbooba has been visiting her father’s grave on his death anniversary every year. However, she could not visit this year due to her detention.
Mehbooba was released from detention after 14 months on Tuesday evening.
On January 07 this year, Mehbooba’s daughter also wanted to visit her grandfather’s grave but was denied permission by the authorities.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court Thursday closed the case filed by Iltija Mufti against the detention of her mother and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti after taking note of her release two days ago.
“Okay. Good,” a bench headed by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul said when the counsel of Union Territory administration and Iltija informed it about the release of Mufti, who is the president of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
