SRINAGAR — Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Sunday said that the LG Manoj Sinha says one thing and the police do something entirely different as far as the detention of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq is concerned.

Omar reacted on social media after the police deployed outside the Nigeen-based residence of Mirwaiz stopped journalists from interviewing him.

“The LG says one thing & the police does something entirely different. “We have instructions to stop him (Mirwaiz) from coming out and also to prevent visitors from going inside. We are only doing our duty. If the government gives us a different order, we will follow it,” Omar wrote on Twitter.
