Sources said that the government revoked her PSA detention order of February 5 which was extended by three months on 31-7-2020.
Mehbooba was among hundreds of people detained in 2019 to prevent protests against the Government of India’s move to divest J&K of its special status through the nullification of the Constitution’s Article 370 and to divide state into two Union territories.
