Srinagar, Sep 28: The Supreme Court will hear a plea on Tuesday seeking the release of former Jammu & Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti. The petition was filed before the Apex Court last week by Iltija, the daughter of Mufti.
She has appealed the top court to restore the fundamental rights of her mother and order her release from detention. Mufti, 61, was detained over an year ago along with several other political leaders. She, along with ex-CMs Omar Abdullah and Farooq Abdullah, was taken into custody on August 4, a day before the Centre issued an executive order to repeal Article 370 from Jammu & Kashmir.
