Shiekh Abdullah and his colleagues were released on the 8th at 5 P.M. Thus it?
Shiekh Abdullah and his colleagues were released on the 8th at 5 P.M. Thus it was dark on those hills, besides none could reach and no pictures were made on that evening. He chose not to return to Srinagarand, to stay in Dakbungalow of Kud. Kud is a very lonely hill and health resort. Not many people are visible.
On 9th people thought he would proceed to Srinagar where perhaps his supporters would hold a procession or reception in his honour. But he did not leave Kud. Thus correspondents had to stay at Srinagar and waste the day.
Having gathered that his plans are at present no to leave Kud, the correspondents started 130 mile trip by road to KUD and met him in the morning of 10th. They interviewed him, as shown above.
Thus these are the first movie pictures taken of him. UPA also made only this story.
Since his plans are to stay in Kud for some time, all correspondents who had gone from Delhi, thought there would not be exciting pictures in Kud, and returned. A hurried trip was taken to Jammu to catch a plane and send pictures and articles by all corespondents.
Shiekh Abdullah and his colleagues were released after 4 1/2 years' detention.
