Enactment of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir on October 17, 1949 by Shri Jawaharlal Nehru was to appease the ego of Sheikh Abdullah who later betrayed him and was ultimately arrested by intelligence Bureau (IB) for treason. Soon after accession with India, Sheikh desired independent status for J&K which was reported by IB to Nehru. In order to sidetrack this allegation, Sheikh demanded the abdication of Maharaja Hari Singh whom he accused for the massacre of Muslims in Jammu region. Nehru conceded to this illegitimate demand of Sheikh Abdullah and in May, 1949, Yuvraj Karan Singh took over his place and was assigned the status of an agent of Maharaja. These actions of Sheikh Abdullah emboldened him who perceived that Indian Government was at his mercy and he fully exploited this situation in his nefarious designs. He was subsequently started hobnobbing with Pakistan when IB got him arrested when full evidence were found against him. (Page 34-35)
