A team of the federal agency reached Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief’s Fairview house with a summon, which according to sources wasn’t received by her family. “People had come with the summon but Mehbooba Mufti wasn’t in the town so nobody received the summon,” sources said.
Mufti was released from detention after over a year on October 13 last year. She had been in detention under the Public Safety Act since August 5, 2019, the day the Centre abolished the special status of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, and bifurcated it into Union Territories.
Following her release, she joined hands with once rivals Farooq Abdullah-led National Conference and other parties to form the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration. The alliance won over 100 seats in the District Development Council elections held in Jammu and Kashmir in December 2020. However, the Bharatiya Janata Party emerged as the single-largest party.
