Mehbooba Mufti under house arrest ahead of SC verdict on Article 370: PDP

People's Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti was put under house arrest on Monday ahead of the Supreme Court's verdict on a batch of petitions challenging the abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution, her party has said.

In a tweet, the PDP said the police had sealed the doors of Mufti's residence before the Article 370 verdict was announced.

"Even before Supreme Court judgement is pronounced, police has sealed the doors of the residence of PDP president @MehboobaMufti and put her under illegal house arrest," the party said in a post on X.

However, Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha refuted the PDP's claim that Mufti had been put under house arrest and called it "baseless".

"This is totally baseless. No one has been put under house arrest or arrested due to political reasons in Jammu and Kashmir. It is an attempt to spread rumours," he said.

Meanwhile, police did not allow journalists to gather near National Conference (NC) president Farooq Abdullah and vice-president Omar Abdullah's residence at Gupkar in Srinagar, officials said.

A group of police personnel was also deployed at the entry point of Gupkar Road.

Omar Abdullah lives with his father after he vacated his official residence in October 2020.

While Farooq Abdullah, who is a Member of Parliament from Srinagar, is in Delhi for the ongoing Parliament session, his son is in the valley.

On August 5, 2019, Mehbooba, Omar Abdullah, Farooq Abdullah and other Kashmiri leaders were arrested after the Centre passed bills to strip Jammu and Kashmir of its special status and bifurcate the erstwhile state into two Union Territories (UTs), Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
