Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Ministers Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti  and People's Conference chief Sajad Lone have been put under house arrest by central authorities as stern restrictions are imposed in the Kashmir Valley from early Monday morning.

“I believe I”m being placed under house arrest from midnight tonight & the process has already started for other mainstream leaders. No way of knowing if this is true but if it is then I”ll see all of you on the other side of whatever is in store. Allah save us” tweeted Omar.

“To the people of Kashmir, we don”t know what is in store for us but I am a firm believer that what ever Almighty Allah has planned it is always for the better, we may not see it now but we must never doubt his ways. Good luck to everyone, stay safe & above all PLEASE STAY CALM,” Abdullah said in a series of tweets.

Mehbooba Mufti, who tweeted about hearing “reports about internet being snapped soon including cellular coverage” and “curfew passes being issued”, posted: “God knows what awaits us tomorrow. It”s going to be a long night.”

“In such difficult times, I”d like to assure our people that come what may, we are in this together & will fight it out. Nothing should break our resolve to strive for what”s rightfully ours.”

Subsequently, Mehbooba Mufti tweeted: “How ironic that elected representatives like us who fought for peace are under house arrest. The world watches as people & their voices are being muzzled in J&K. The same Kashmir that chose a secular democratic India is facing oppression of unimaginable magnitude. Wake up India”.

Mobile internet services were suspended in many areas across the Kashmir valley as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order, police said. Schools and colleges have been shut down and various educational institutions directed their students to vacate hostels.
