Earlier on October 15, the Estates Department of the Jammu and Kashmir government served a notice to the PDP president to vacate her official bungalow in the high-security Gupkar area.

Meanwhile, local news agencies, citing unnamed officials, said seven other former legislators including former MLAs and MLCs have also been asked to vacate the government quarters under their occupation.

The former legislators include Altaf Wani, Abdul Rahim Rather, Abdul Majeed Bhat, Altaf Shah Alias Kalo, Bashir Shah alias Veeri, Choudhary Nizamuddin and Abdul Kabir Pathan.

PDP chief spokesperson Suhail Bukhari alleged that Mufti was offered a dilapidated place in Srinagar’s Tulsi Bagh, which she found unsuitable.

Fairview Bungalow, the house on Gupkar Road, overlooking Srinagar’s Dal Lake, was allotted to Mehbooba’s father, former chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, in 2005.

The residence was previously an interrogation centre called PAPA-II, and it served as an official guest house till 1989. The Border Security Force (BSF) occupied it in 1990.
