Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and PDP chief, Mehbooba Mufti has issued a statement after being released from 14-month long detention on Tuesday night.

She released a video statement on Twitter along with the caption, “After being released from fourteen long months of illegal detention, a small message for my people.

Mufti had been under detention under the stringent Public Safety Act (PSA) since the eve of the Centre scrapping Article 370 and bifurcating the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories.

Moments after Mufti’s release was confirmed, her daughter, Iltija Mufti, who had been handling her mother’s Twitter account, tweeted: “As Ms Mufti’s illegal detention finally comes to an end, Id like to thank everybody who supported me in these tough times. I owe a debt of gratitude to you all. This is Iltija signing off. May allah protect you”.
