Release Omar and other detainees, Stalin pleads


Troubled by a picture of former Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah who has been under house arrest along with his father Farooq Abdullah and another former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti since the revocation of Art 370 on Aug 5 last year, DMK president M K Stalin has demanded their immediate release by the Modi Government.

In a tweet in which he has tagged photos of Omar Abdullah clean shaven before his detention and now heavily bearded, Stalin has said he is equally concerned about Farooq and Mehbooba Mufti and other Kashmiri leaders” who are incarcerated without trial or due process.

He has said the Union Government should immediately release all political prisoners and restore normalcy in Valley.
