Omar, the working President of opposition National Conference, today said a CID person was posted outside his residence to keep a watch on people coming and going out. "Mufti Govt brazenly spying on me.

A journalist interviewing me for a national daily just got stopped right outside my gate by CID person," he tweeted.

"She (journalist) was asked who she was and what the purpose of her visit was! Seriously guys if you want to know just ask me, I couldn't care less if you do," he added.
