The Jammu and Kashmir administration Tuesday ordered the discharge of former chief minister Omar Abdullah, who has been detained at his Hari Niwas residence at Gupkar Road in Srinagar since August 5, 2019. He was positioned in preventive detention following the abrogation of Article 370. In February, the J&K administration invoked the stringent Public Safety Act (PSA) in opposition to him for his capability to “convince his electorate to vote in huge numbers”.

Abdullah’s launch comes weeks after his father, former chief minister and Lok Sabha MP Farooq Abdullah was released from detention. A day after his launch, Farooq had visited Omar at Hari Niwas.

More particulars awaited.
