Responding to the letter from the Anti-Corruption Bureau asking her to clarify her stand on the controversial recruitments in J-K Bank, president of People’s Democratic Party and the former Chief Minister of J-K, Mehbooba Mufti, said that these actions are concerted efforts are being made to browbeat mainstream leaders and thwart potential efforts for a collective response.
She wrote on Twitter: “Not surprised to receive a letter from the Anti-Corruption Bureau. Concerted efforts are being made to browbeat mainstream leaders & thwart potential efforts for a collective response. I am too small an entity vis a vis the cause that unites us today. Such tactics won’t work.”

In a letter No: SSP/ACBK/FIR-10/2019/3064 dated 03-08-2019, SSP, ACB, has asked Mehbooba, “During the course of investigation of case FIR No 10/2019, poli station ACKB dated 08-06-2019, it has surfaced that some appointments were made by Chairman J-K Bank on references and recommendations of few ministers.”
“It may please be clarified whether such references had your endorsement, verbal or otherwise for appointments in J-K Bank,” it added.
