Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and People's Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday (7 September) alleged that she was placed under house arrest by the J&K administration.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Mufti claimed that the J&K administration told her that the situation in Kashmir is allegedly "far from normal".

"GOI expresses concern for the rights of Afghan people but wilfully denies the same to Kashmiris. Ive been placed under house arrest today because according to admin the situation is far from normal in Kashmir. This exposes their fake claims of normalcy,"Mufti said in the tweet.

However, the administration has not yet given any official response on Mufti's house arrest.

After the abrogation of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution that accorded special status to the erstwhile state, Mehbooba Mufti and other prominent leaders of Kashmir were placed in detention in 2019.

Mufti was released after a 14-month long detention and house arrest in October last year.
