Farooq Abdullah wins Hazratbal seat

india Updated: Dec 28, 2008 14:33 IST

National Conference patron and former chief minister Farooq Abdullah has won the Hazratbal seat from Srinagar.

As the results of the staggered Jammu and Kashmir elections came in, the National Conference appears to be emerging as the single largest party, the status it held in the 2002 elections.

However, the former chief minister was trailing in Sonawar constituency, the second seat he was contesting.

With results of six seats already out, the National Conference headed by Omar Abdullah has won four seats and was ahead in 23 of the 87 seats.

The counting of the votes polled in the seven-phase election began on Sunday morning.
