He has condemned the clamping of curfew-like restrictions in parts of Srinagar to foil the march to Saidakadal.
A spokesman of the conglomerate quoting Geelani said, “On one hand innocent teenagers are being killed and on the other brute force is being unleashed on mourners and pallbearers.”
“The situation is explosive because government is trying to control it by force and undemocratic means. This will have far reaching consequences,” he quoted Geelani as saying.
He termed Tufail’s killing as “barbaric.” “His killing is not the first of its kind. Teenaged boys have been killed in a similar manner in the past by being fatally at shot and killed. Same is being repeated every now and then.”

Freedom struggle can’t be suppressed: DM
The Dukhtaran-e-Milat chief Asiya Andrabi on Monday said the ongoing movement could not suppressed by the dint force.
“I want to make it clear to the state rulers and New Delhi that they should not nurture the fanciful notion that they can suppress the ongoing movement by using indiscriminate force. Everything has its limit and every rise its fall. When the tyranny touches heights, it has its natural fall,” said Asiya while addressing a condolence meeting at Tufail’s residence.
Asiya said, “The height of the tyranny is that our sons are killed and we are not allowed to mourn their killings. The police and the civil administration had sealed all routes to prevent us from reaching here to console Tufail’s family. Is it a crime to wipe the tears of bereaved families? Have the tears of oppressed Kashmiris no value?” she asked.
The Chairman of Peoples Freedom League, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani has condemned Tufail’s killing.
In a statement he said, “On the one hand the Indian Prime Minister, awards degrees to students in Kashmir and on the other, the security agencies kill them with impunity.” He urged the international human rights organizations to take cognizance of the killing.
