New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday sought a response from the Centre and the Jammu and Kashmir administration on a plea seeking the release of former Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah who is in detention since the Narendra Modi government scrapped Article 370 on August 5, media reports said.

The plea was filed by Tamil Nadu's MDMK leader Vaiko, a long-term friend of Abdullah.

Not only Abdullah but also other Kashmiri leaders including former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti were detained after the Centre took the historic step to withdraw the special status which Jammu and Kashmir used to enjoy since Independence.

Mufti's daughter Iltija had earlier written to Union Home Minister Amit Shah over her mother's detention.

Earlier in September, the Supreme Court had allowed Iltija to meet her mother in Jammu and Kashmir.
