Srinagar: Hardline Hurriyat Conference
Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani has been placed under house arrest ahead of a rally planned by him in south Kashmir`s Anantnag town Friday.
"Geelani has been placed under house arrest since
last evening as a preventive measure," a senior police official said.
The Hurriyat hawk had called for a public rally in Anantnag town as part of his campaign to seek release of all
political prisoners in the state.
He was put under house arrest last week also as he had
called for a similar rally in Shopian district headquarters.
