Abdullah was among the many political leaders who had been put under house arrest after the Central government revoked Article 370 of the Constitution that accorded special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
“Govt issues orders revoking detention of Shri Omar Abdullah @diprjk,” Rohit Kansal, Principal Secretary Planning, Jammu and Kashmir tweeted.
Omar Abdullah’s father Farooq Abdullah was released from detention earlier this month, while PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti is still under detention.
