Reports regarding his return to Kashmir also proved wrong after the Ministry of Home Affairs issued statement that Mirwaiz’s investigation is important.
Sources said it’s difficult to say whether Mirwaiz will be allowed to return Kashmir given Home Ministry’s statement that his quizzing is mandatory for investigation. They however said that he may return back to valley on Thursday if all goes well.
Mirwaiz is accompanied by senior party leaders including Bilal Gani Lone, Masroor Abbas Ansari and Professor Abdul Gani Bhat besides his counsel.
