After daughter appeal Mehbooba Mufti shifted from detention to Lal Chowk
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti has been shifted from the place where she had been detained since early August.
Mehbooba Mufti was shifted from Chashme Shahi to a warmer location in Srinagar.
PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti was shifted to Srinagar's Lal Chowk from Chashme Shahi guesthouse.
The Centre will be responsible if anything happens to Mehbooba, the president of the PDP, Iltija Mufti had written in a letter to the Srinagar deputy commissioner.
"As you are aware my mother Ms Mehbooba Mufti, former CM J&K has been jailed since 5 August. A doctor recently ran multiple tests on her as she was not keeping well. As per those tests, her Vitamin D, hemoglobin and Calcium levels are low," Iltija Mufti had written in the letter.
"The accommodation she is currently lodged in is not equipped for Kashmir's harsh winters. Keeping in mind these points, I would like to request you to shift her to another location more suitable. I hope you will address this problem urgently," the PDP leader's daughter had said.
Mehbooba is among the many political leaders, including erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir's former chief ministers Farooq Abdullah and his son Omar Abdullah, who have been under detention in Srinagar since August 5, the day the Centre announced the abrogation of Article 370 provisions and the decision to bifurcate the state into two Union Territories (UTs).
