Sheikh Abdullah’s Anniversary Minus the Family
Farooq and Omar Abdullah in jail
SRINAGAR: For the first time in Kashmir's memory Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah were missing on Sheikh Abdullah's 114th birth anniversary that was observed by a small gathering indoors. A few persons gathered in a rather lack lustre affair amidst heavy security, with grim faces. Both the former Chief Ministers and the son and grandson of Sheikh Abdullah are in detention, since August when the centre abrogated Articles 370 and 35A. There is no news about their release.
