Summons to Mehbooba
Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate to New Delhi, in an alleged money laundering case.
According to the news agencies from New Delhi a case has been registered against her under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
Mehbooba Mufti has been very vocal against the decisions of the central government post abrogation of article 370, and has said that she would not be brow beaten by any threats from any quarter as she will always stand for the restoration of article 370.
While National Conference patron and PAGD Chief Farooq Abdullah have moved to Jammu and Kashmir high court regarding the attaching of his properties, Mehbooba has not reacted so far to the summons of the Enforcement Directorate.
After her released, she joined hands with rival National Conference’s Farooq Abdullah and others to form the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration and said that she will continue to protest against all the decisions and recently she said in one of the public meetings that government of India will have to restore the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.
After abrogation of article 370, most of the mainstream political leaders were arrested including Mehbooba Mufti and she was the last of the mainstream leaders to get released from the detention.
