ANI published a video byte on columnist Shobhaa De on Monday rubbishing claims by former Pakistan envoy to India Abdul Basit, that he had impressed upon her to write the 2016 article where she "advocated plebiscite" in Kashmir in the aftermath of Burhan Wani's death. Speaking to ANI, De said that the only time she ever met Basit was during the Jaipur Literature Festival in January 2019, when the former envoy attempted to make a conversation at a "publishing party" but was "almost as good as asked to leave".
