Srinagar, Oct 15: Two days after her release, former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti Thursday morning visited her father’s grave in south Kashmir’s Bijbehara.

Accompanied by several party leaders, she visited Mufti Mohammad Saeed’s grave amid tight security arrangements in place.

A senior police official told news agency Kashmir Indepth News Service (KINS) that adequate security arrangements have been made in the area in view of recent attacks in South Kashmir.

Mehbooba was released from detention after 14 months on Tuesday evening.

Since the death of her father, Mehbooba has been visiting her father’s grave on his death anniversary. However, she could not go there this year as she was under detention since August 5 last year. On January 7 this year, Mehbooba’s daughter also wanted to visit her grandfather’s grave but was denied permission by the authorities.

On Wednesday, National Conference patron Farooq Abdullah along with his son Omar Abdullah met Mehbooba at her residence a day after her release.

Farooq has convened a meeting at his residence at 4-pm today for chalking out the future course of action on ‘Gupkar Declaration’. Mehbooba will also be attending the meeting.(KINS)
