National Conference leader Omar Abdullah and People’s Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday condemned the Centre’s decision to delimit sale of non-agricultural land in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Centre has announced new rules that allow any Indian citizen to buy land in Jammu and Kashmir. As per the notification issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs, no domicile or permanent resident certificate is required for purchasing non-agricultural land in Jammu and Kashmir. However, agricultural land can only be purchased by agriculturalists or people engaged in farm-related activities.

The data, offered at a starting price of $80,000 on a dark web site is said to include 70 million user records containing email addresses, full names, bcrypt hashed passwords, titles, company names, IP addresses and other system-related data.
