uthorities on Monday took into preventive custody at least twenty political leaders, including three senior PDP functionaries.

Similar action is being taken against mainstream politicians in other districts of Kashmir valley as well, reports said.
Taking to Twitter, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said, “Total lawlessness as PDP’s Sartaj Madni & Mansoor Hussain have been arbitrarily detained today on the eve of DDC election results. Every senior police officer here is clueless as it is ‘upar say order’. No rule of law in J&K anymore. It is out & out Gunda Raj.”
