Jammu and Kashmir governor Satya Pal Malik has allowed a delegation of the National Conference (NC) from the Jammu province to meet party president Farooq Abdullah and vice-president Omar Abdullah, currently under detention, in Srinagar on Sunday.

NC spokesperson Madan Mantoo confirmed the development saying, “The delegation, comprising provincial president Devender Singh Rana and former party legislators, will leave from Jammu on Sunday morning.”

Rana had sought a permission in this regard from the governor on Thursday evening.

Mantoo said the decision to meet the two leaders was taken during an emergent meeting of the senior functionaries and district presidents of the Jammu province on Wednesday, soon after restrictions on the movement of Jammu-based National Conference leaders were lifted.

Farooq Abdullah is under house arrest at his Srinagar residence while his son Omar is detained at a state guest house. The Abdullahs are among several leaders of mainstream political parties in the Kashmir Valley who have been under detention since the abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir on August 5.

Adviser to the Jammu and Kashmir governor, Farooq Khan, had on Thursday said Kashmiri leaders would be released “one by one after analysis of every individual”.
