Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti’s daughter Sana Iltija has filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking directions to the authorities to allow her to meet her mother.
Mehbooba Mufti has been under detention since India took the decision to scrap Article 370, which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir. In the petition, Sana said that she has been deeply concerned about her mother Mehbooba Mufti’s health since she has not met her for the past month.
Earlier, Sana had written a letter to India’s Union Home Minister Amit Shah over the restrictions on the people in Kashmir Valley. In the letter, she said that while the country was celebrating Independence Day, Kashmiri people were being “caged like animals” and “deprived of basic human rights”.
