Mehbooba responsible for NIA summons to Mirwaiz: Omar Abdullah


SRINAGAR: National Conference (NC) vice president and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday said that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti was responsible for National Investigation Agency (NIA) summons to Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.

“NIA filed an FIR against Mirwaiz in 2017 when Mehbooba Mufti was the Chief Minister of the state so she (Mehbooba) alone is responsible for the notices NIA is sending to Mirwaiz Umar Farooq,” Omar said on the sidelines of a party rally in Kupwara.

“AFSPA should be revoked in Jammu and Kashmir the way it was revoked in Arunachal Pradesh,” Omar said.
