New Delhi: Amid rising tensions in Jammu and Kashmir, the Union Cabinet meeting on Monday at the official residence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi concluded.

This meeting came hours after the National Conference leader Omar Abdullah, People’s Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti and Jammu and Kashmir People’s Conference chairman Sajad Lone were placed under house arrest on Sunday night.

 

The news of their house arrest came into light when Omar Abdullah hinted about the move on social media. He tweeted: “I believe I'm being placed under house arrest from midnight tonight and the process has already started for other mainstream leaders. No way of knowing if this is true but if it is then I'll see all of you on the other side of whatever is in store. Allah save us."

Many political leaders, including Congress leader Shashi Tharoor and Communist Party of India-Marxist chief Sitaram Yechury, came out in his support.
