Highlighting the bad impact of Article 370, former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti's daughter Iltija Mufti has written a letter to Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
In the letter, Iltija Mufti said that while the country was celebrating Independence Day, Kashmiris were being like "caged animals" and "deprived of basic human rights".
Pointing out how she was deprived of freedom, Iltija Mufti said that visitors were not allowed to meet her. "I'd be most obliged if you could kindly throw light on the laws under which I've been detained and for how long," Iltija Mufti told Amit Shah.
"Do I need to seek legal recourse?" Iltija Mufti concluded her letter with a question.
Kashmir remained shut for the 12th consecutive day on Friday, even as the authorities relaxed restrictions on the movement of people in Srinagar.
