The move to meet Mufti has come a day after a 15-member delegation of National Conference from Jammu met party president Farooq Abdullah and vice president Omar Abdullah who are also under detention.
The PDP delegation, scheduled for October 7, will be led by General Secretary Ved Mahajan, former PDP legislator and spokesperson Firdous Tak, according to reports.
The PDP, reportedly, has requested Governor Satya Pal Malik to allow a party delegation from Jammu to meet Mehbooba and their request was granted.
It may be mentioned here that Mufti, the former Chief Minister, was detained on August 5, the day the Centre announced abrogation of Article 370, thereby stripping the special status of Jammu & Kashmir.
The PDP delegation will be the first meeting with the party leaders.
