Jammu and Kashmir  Former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti was released late Tuesday night after being detained by the government for nearly 14 months – since it scrapped Article 370 in August – and being charged under the Public Safety Act (PSA) – a stringent law that allows detention and multiple extensions without trial for up to three months – in February.

Ms Mufti’s release comes just as a deadline set by the Supreme Court, which had been approached by her daughter Iltija Mufti with a habeas corpus petition, was set to expire.

In September the court questioned the centre and the J&K administration over her detention, asking them: “How long can Mehbooba Mufti be kept in custody?” The J&K administration was given two weeks to explain how long they intended to keep Ms Mufti in custody.

In July, Ms Mufti’s detention under the Public Safety Act was extended for another three months.

Minutes after Ms Mufti’s release was confirmed her daughter, Iltija Mufti, who took over her mother’s Twitter account after she was detained, tweeted: “As Ms Mufti’s illegal detention finally comes to an end, Id like to thank everybody who supported me in these tough times. I owe a debt of gratitude to you all. This is Iltija signing off. May Allah protect you”.

“There is a sense of huge relief,” Iltija Mufti told  when asked about relinquishing control of her mother’s social media account, “Twitter is a toxic place. Glad I will not be on it anymore. My mother will finally use her own Twitter handle. It felt abnormal to use hers.”

“…but a lot of young people are still languishing in jail. (The detention was a) complete travesty of justice (and) other families are still suffering,” she added.

Maruti Suzuki is India’s largest carmaker. The brand sells the highest number of cars in the Indian market. Adding to the same point is the fact that the top five best selling cars last month were Maruti Suzuki vehicles. This though is no fail proof plan that each month the cars will continue selling no matter what. To this very effect, Maruti Suzuki dealerships are offering discounts on their cars. Each and every model in the Maruti Suzuki Arena dealership gets a discount. For example, the least priced offering from the manufacturer, the Maruti Suzuki Alto gets a cash discount of Rs 15,000 whereas if one were to exchange their old car then an additional Rs 15,000 off will be provided. On the Celerio X, a few dealers are willing to give up to Rs 10,000 cash discount whereas on the Celerio, the offer is for Rs 15,000. However the Rs 15,000 is only available as exchange bonus.
