In a major development in Jammu and Kashmir, former chief minister and National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah was detained under the Public Safety Act. Article 370 was abrogated and the state was bifurcated into Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh with 370 votes in favour and 70 against the Bill.

Communist Occasion of India-Marxist (CPIM) chief Sitaram Yechury on Monday slammed the centre for charging Nationwide Convention chief Farooq Abdullah under the strict Public Safety Act (PSA), asserting the pass changed into a "cowardly afterthought" by the BJP.

Around 400 politicians including former chief ministers Farooq Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah are under house arrest since the Centre abrogated Article 370 and bifurcated Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories on August 5.

He pointed out Union Home Minister Amit Shah's statement in the Parliament on August 6, where Shah had said that Abdullah was "neither detained nor arrested", when members pointed out his absence during the Lok Sabha debate on Article 370 of the Constitution. "He is allowed to consume food prepared at his residence, but whatever else is taken inside, including his medicines, will all be checked by security staff", said the source, adding, "Abdullah will continue to stay at his house and there is no bar on meeting close relatives". The Left leader also said that the PSA was a draconian law which people of J&K had said should be repealed.

SC notice to Centre, J&K Meanwhile, the Centre and the J&K administration were asked by the SC to respond to a plea seeking that Abdullah be produced in court.

The decision to apply the Public Safety Act on the National Conference president came on Sunday night, according to The Wire, ahead of Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) leader Vaiko's habeas corpus petition in the Indian Supreme Court.

Vaiko's counsel told the court that there is no information about Abdullah and the provisions in which he has been detained. Salman Khurshid, a leader with the main opposition Congress party, said that Mr Abdullah had "upheld the unity and integrity" of India.

"We will fight, we will go to the courts". On the same day, Abdullah while speaking to TV channels had said that he had been kept under arrest in his house. The detained person does not have the right to move a bail application before a criminal court, and can not engage any lawyer to represent him or her before the detaining authority.

Masoodi told The Indian Express: "See how many threats he braved (over the years)... he lost thousands of cadres simply for the reason that they were believed to side with India".
