Srinagar: Separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani was detained by police at the Srinagar airport and put under house arrest soon after his arrival from New Delhi.

In the national capital, the chairman of the hardline faction of the Hurriyat Conference was questioned by the Delhi Police in connection with a hawala case.

"He was detained at the airport and put under house arrest soon after his arrival from Delhi," amalgam spokesman Ayaz Akbar said here.

The Hurriyat hawk was scheduled to return to Kashmir on Tuesday but was stopped by the Delhi Police at the airport for questioning and recording his statement in a hawala case.

Geelani's close aide Ghulam Mohammed Bhat has been arrested in connection with the case.

The pro-Pak Kashmiri separatist leader also underwent medical check-ups in Delhi.
