A delegation of Conference from Jammu province has been granted permission by the administration to meet party president and vice president Omar Abdullah, who are currently under detention, here on Sunday.

"The delegation led by provincial president Devender Singh Rana and comprising former party legislators will fly from Jammu tomorrow morning," Conference spokesperson Madan Mantoo said.

Rana had sought permission from Governor Satya Pal Malik in this regard.

Mantoo said the decision to meet the Abdullahs was taken at an emergent meeting of senior functionaries and district presidents of the Jammu Province two days ago, soon after restrictions on the movement of Jammu-based Conference leaders were lifted.

Eighty-one-year-old is under house arrest at his Srinagar residence while his son Omar is detained at a state guest house.
