Detention can't be forever: SC asks JK admin to reply on Mufti's plea

Sep 29, 2020 19:38 IST

The Supreme Court Tuesday asked the Jammu and Kashmir administration to respond to Iltija Mufti’s fresh plea challenging the detention of her mother Mehbooba Mufti under the Public Safety Act and said that the detention cannot be forever.

Mehbooba, the PDP chief and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister, was arrested on the eve of the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status and its bifurcation into Union Territories on August 5 last year.

The apex court also said that Mufti should approach authorities to attend party meetings in the Valley. A bench of justices S K Kaul and Hrishikesh Roy permitted Iltija and her uncle to meet their mother in detention.
