NEW DELHI:  Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah is neither under detention nor arrest and he is at his home of his own will, Home Minister Amit Shah informed Lok Sabha on Tuesday.

He made these remarks when Supriya Sule (NCP) said Abdullah used to sit next to him in the House.

She said he is not in House and his voice is not being heard.
