Mehbooba Mufti visits father's grave on his first death anniversary

Srinagar: On Saturday, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti visited her father's grave, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, at Bijbehara in Anantnag district to offer prayers on his first death anniversary.

Mehbooba, accompanied by Works Minister Abdul Rehman Veeri, PDP General Secretary Sartaj Madni and few relatives, visited Mufti's grave this morning and offered prayers for the founder patron of the ruling party, officials said.

Mufti, former chief minister of the state, died at AIIMS hospital this day last year after he was admitted due to severe infection.

Although PDP had planned several rallies across the valley to mark Mufti's first death anniversary, snowfall over the past four days put a spanner in the works.

However, the party has organised a function at Indoor Stadium later in the day to pay tributes to the departed leader.
