Supreme Court seeks response of the J&K Administration on a plea challenging former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s detention

The Supreme Court today sought response of the Jammu and Kashmir Administration on a plea challenging former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s detention under the Public Safety Act.

A bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra also asked Iltija Mufti, daughter of the PDP Chief, to give an undertaking stating that she has not filed any other petition before other judicial forum, including the high court, challenging the detention of her mother.

Iltija had filed a petition in the apex court challenging the government’s order issued on 5th of February for invoking the Public Safety Act (PSA) provision against Mehbooba Mufti to keep her in detention.

The bench has now posted the plea for hearing on 18th of March.
