‘Police tried to thwart video conference’
Srinagar, May 4: Police on Wednesday tried to thwart the video conference organized by Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (R) here by quizzing the hotel owner and snapping electricity lines to the venue, the vice- president of the JKLF (R) Javed Ahmad Mir told Greater Kashmir.
He said as soon as Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani entered the premises, police snapped electricity as well as generator wires.
Later on the police questioned the hotel owner Farooq Ahmad of Ismail Guest House. “It was just a video conference. When they allow so-called interlocutors to hold conferences, why we are being debarred?” Mir asked.
The Station House Officer of Police Station Khralkhud Riyaz Ahmad told Greater Kashmir the hotel owner didn’t follow any procedure. “There is a procedure to inform local police station,” he said.
The SHO said the owner was not detained. He was asked as to why he didn’t inform us about the event.
