Indian actress-politician Urmila Matondkar said that her husband Mohsin Akhtar Mir has not been able to communicate with his parents, who live in Jammu and Kashmir, for the past 22 days.

"The question is not about abrogating Article 370 but the manner in which it was done," the Congress politician told the media.

She also mentioned that her in-laws suffer from diabetes and high-blood pressure.

"My father-in-law and mother-in-law stay there. Both are diabetic, have high blood pressure. Today is the 22nd day, neither me nor my husband have been able to speak to them. We have no clue if they have medicines available at home," she said.
