PULWAMA — Mehbooba Mufti, the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir and the president of the Peoples Democratic Party paid a visit to PDP youth President Waheed-ur-Rehman Parra’s home in the Naira area of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Saturday.
Parra, the PDP youth wing leader, was granted bail by the Jammu & Kashmir High Court on Wednesday, 18 months after his detention by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on accusations of suspected ‘terror’ ties.
