Former Jammu and Kashmir CMs Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah detained by police to prevent law and order situation

The PDP and NCP leaders have opposed the central govt decision to remove Articles 370 and 35A

Former Jammu and Kashmir chief ministers Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah have been detained by the Jammu and Kashmir police as a preventive measure. They, along with several political leaders of the state were already under house arrest since last night. The government is taking these precautionary measures to prevent any law and order situation as the special status enjoyed by Jammu and Kashmir was withdrawn by diluting Article 370 and abolishing Article 35A today. The government also bifurcated the state into two union territories, Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.

After the presidential order changing the state’s status tabled by Home Minister in Rajya Sabha, Mehbooba Mufti had posted a series of tweets strongly opposing the move. She had claimed with the articles gone, the accession of Jammu and Kashmir had become null and void. Omar Abdullah had also issued similar statements in media.

An order addressed to Mehbooba Mufti by the executive magistrate of Srinagar says that activities of Mehbooba Mufti are likely to cause serious law and order situation and breach of peace of tranquillity of the state. The order also says it appears that the former CM and others are about to meet and proceed in a procession, which will create further law and order problems. It is speculated that she was trying to leave her residence to arrange a protest.
