Several politicians, including Omar, his father and NC president Farooq Abdullah, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti and NC general secretary Ali Mohammad Sagar, were detained hours
before the Centre announced the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status under Article 370 of the Constitution and bifurcation of the state into union territories on August 5 last year.
