Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Friday accused the PDP-led government in the state of spying on him.

In a series of tweets, the National Conference president and main opposition leader in the state said that the government was spying on him "brazenly" and asked the state government to tell him directly if they want to know about his activities.

The former J-K CM said that "a journalist who had come to interview him was stopped right outside his gate by CID person".

"She was asked who she was and what was the purpose of her visit," Omar wrote on Twitter.

"Dear Mufti sahib, if you and your apparatchiks want to know what I'm up to, pick up the phone and ask me. Please don't accost people outside my gate," the former CM said.

Meanwhile, the PDP said that the person mentioned by Omar was not a cop but a party worker who had asked the journalist why she was allowed inside while he was barred, a PDP spokesperson told media.
