National Conference (NC) patron and union minister Farooq Abdullah on Monday filed his nomination papers for the Srinagar Lok Sabha seat.

Farooq Abdullah was accompanied by his son, NC president and Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah, and other senior party leaders.

The State Congress president, Saif-ud-Din Soz also accompanied the union minister to the office of the returning officer at the Tankipora area of the summer capital Srinagar.

Farooq Abdullah is re-contesting from the Srinagar constituency and is challenged by Peoples Democratic Party candidate Tariq Hameed Karra and Aam Aadmi Party candidate Raja Muzaffar Bhat.

Farooq Abdullah is scheduled to address a rally at the mausoleum of his father and NC founder, Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah, in the Nigeen area of the city later on Monday.
