Jammu and Kashmir's administration has released three politicians who were under detention since August 5 when the Centre abrogated the special status granted to the state. Officials said Yawar Mir, Noor Mohammed, and Shoiab Lone were released on various grounds.
While Mir is a former PDP MLA from the Rafiabad assembly seat, Lone contested unsuccessfully on a Congress ticket from North Kashmir and later resigned as district president of the party.
Noor Mohammed is a National Conference worker who has been managing the party's show in the militancy-infested Batmaloo area of the Srinagar city.
Authorities had earlier released Imran Ansari of the People's Conference and Syed Akhoon on health grounds on September 21. (AIR NEWS)
