Srinagar, Jan 7 (IBNS): Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, along with her party-men and family members, on Saturday visited her father’s grave in Bijbehara area of Anantnag in south Kashmir to offer prayers and commemorate the first death anniversary of Former CM Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.

Mufti Mohammad Sayeed died on this day last year due to multiple organ failure at AIIMS hospital in New Delhi.
