Srinagar: Eleven mobile phones have been recovered from the possession of several mainstream leaders who are under detention at the MLA Hostel in Srinagar, police said on Sunday.

"Eleven mobile phones were recovered from the MLA hostel during a search operation,” the official said. Security personnel searched the rooms of the detainees and found the mobile phones, he said, adding investigations were on as to how the phones reached inside the sub-jail.

About three dozen politicians have been detained since 5 August  after the Centre abrogated Jammu and Kashmir's special status under Article 370 and bifurcated the erstwhile state into two union territories at the MLA hostel near MA Road here.
