Sartaj Madni released after 6-month-long detention


Srinagar: Senior Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader Sartaj Madni, who is also uncle of former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti was on Saturday released from six-month-long detention.

Madni was detained on December 20 last year and he was lodged at Bijbehara police station, from where he was shifted to MLA Hostel here after four days.
