Without giving further details, the officials said the arrests were made hours after the Narendra Modi government stripped Article 370 via a Presidential order from Jammu and Kashmir that provides special status to the state.

It is learned orders of the Executive Magistrate were followed by arresting Mehbooba Mufti in Srinagar. She has been shifted to Hari Niwas guest house.

The order read, “Your (Mufti) activities are likely to cause breach of peace keeping into consideration your recent activities that may likely lead to serious law and order situation and breach of peace and tranquility in Kashmir.”

Mehbooba Mufti said Monday the scrapping of Article 370 was like the blackest day in Indian democracy.

In a tweeted audio message she said the Parliament has snatched everything from Jammu and Kashmir like thieves.

She added, “Today is the blackest day in Indian democracy. The Indian Parliament just like thieves today snatched everything it has given.”

Mufti further said, “Today people of Jammu and Kashmir are forced to think that the decision of our leaders to reject Pakistan and join India was not right. The conditions with which we joined them have been broken by India. For the respect and dignity of Kashmir, we have no other way.”
