Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has kicked up a political storm, accusing the PDP-BJP coalition government of "brazenly" spying on him.
He drew the inference from the fact that a female journalist from a national daily who was interviewing her was stopped outside his gate and accosted and slapped by a CID officer.
He took to Twitter to make the accusation.

She was asked who she was & what the purpose of her visit was! Seriously guys if you want to know just ask me, I couldn't care less if U do.Ã¢ Omar Abdullah (@abdullah_omar) September 4, 2015
Dear Mufti Sb if you & your apparatchiks want to know what I'm up to pick up the phone & ask me. Please don't accost people outside my gate!Ã¢ Omar Abdullah (@abdullah_omar) September 4, 2015
However, PDP leaders denied the allegations claiming Abdullah was merely seeking attention.
