Srinagar: PDP leader Naeem Akhtar was Sunday released from house detention after over a month, officials said here.This comes amid hectic political consultations in Jammu and Kashmir within mainstream regional parties, including the PDP and National Conference (NC), over an all-party meeting to be chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on June 24.
JAMMU: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Youth President Waheed-ur-Rehmaan Parra who was shifted from Kashmir Jail to Kot Bhalwal Jail on 18 June, has been shifted back to Central Jail Srinagar on Sunday.According to sources, Parra has been shifted back to Central Jail Srinagar two days after he was shifted to Kot Bhalwal Jail. Parra was arrested by NIA for his alleged links with terror outfits.
“Akhtar has been released from house detention,” an official said. The PDP leader was put under house arrest on May 10 after his release from a five-month preventive detention during which he was lodged at the MLA Hostel here. Akhtar was first detained in August 2019 and later booked under the Public Safety Act (PSA). He was released in June 2020 after 10 months of detention, but was again taken into custody in December last year.
Madni, who is also the uncle of PDP president Mehbooba Mufti, was released from the preventive detention on Saturday.

The issue will also be discussed in the meeting of the PAGD — of which the NC as well as the PDP are a part of — on Tuesday here.
