‘20 detained near Geelani’s house’
Srinagar, Sept 1: A day after the Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani threatened to intensify agitation if New Delhi did not accept his five conditions for reviewing the ongoing protests, the conglomerate said that police arrested over 20 persons when they were leaving the veteran leader’s Hyderpora house.
Hurriyat spokesman Ayaz Akbar said a large contingent of police led by a DySP cordoned Hyderpora locality housing Geelani’s residence at 8 am today.
“They arrested over 20 persons who were leaving Geelani’s Sahib’s house after meeting him. The cops also carried out searches of various houses in the locality,” he said while strongly condemning the arrests.
When contacted, Geelani termed it as Government’s ‘frustration.’ “The Government is using pressure tactics to suppress the ongoing agitation. After the authorities failed to crush the movement by bullets and curfews, they are now trying to pressurize us by these crackdowns and arrests. But it won’t deter our resolve,” Geelani said.
The DySP Headquarters, B A Khan, denied any arrests in the locality. “We were conducting routine patrolling in the locality to prevent movement of miscreants. We only questioned a few persons but did not arrest anybody,” the Dy SP told Greater Kashmir.
