Farooq Abdullah's sister and daughter released after 30 hours in prison
Srinagar : Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah's sister and daughter have been released from jail, 30 hours after they were detained on Tuesday for protesting against abrogation of Article 370.
Their counsel Altaf Khan said that the ladies have signed a bond that prohibits them from speaking or making a statement before their release.
The women were arrested by the police for breach of peace and violation of public order as they indulged themselves into the protest against the revocation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status, detention of political leaders and alleged violation of fundamental rights in the Valley.
While Farooq Abdullah's sister did not speak a word after release, she showed a jail stamp on her wrist.
Wife of former chief justice of Jammu and Kashmir High Court Hawa Bashir said, “All that we had to say, we have said it,” while her elder sister Ruqaya said that they were “successful”.
Besides members of the Abdullah family, participants included academicians, retired teachers, social activists and also a non-Kashmiri activist and executive director of Centre for Dialogue and Reconciliation, Sushobha Bharve.
Earlier this month, a protest was organised by journalists in the press club against the internet and mobile shutdown.
