Srinagar: The hardline faction of the Hurriyat Conference on Tuesday alleged that the tax evasion case filed against its chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani by the government was an act of "political vengeance".

"The case filed by the Income tax department against Geelani and his son-in-law Altaf Ahmad Shah is nothing but an act of political vengeance," Hurriyat spokesman Ayaz Akbar said.

Over the past 20 years, Geelani had not acquired any personal property, he said.

The J&K IT department had filed a case against the Hurriyat hawk for allegedly concealing particulars of his income and evading payment of tax.
