'5 days short of a year': Sajad Lone is a free man

Jul 31, 2020 16:42 IST

The Jammu and Kashmir administration on Friday released People's Conference chairman Sajad Lone from house arrest almost a year after he was put under detention in August last year. Lone had been at a detention centre for six months after which he spent another six months under house arrest starting February 5. "Finally 5 days short of a year I have been officially informed that I am a free man," the former separatist-turned-politician tweeted. He added that the detention was "psychologically draining".
