"Today there was apprehension of breach of peace outside the residence of Syed Ali Shah Geelani at Hyderpora during which the road leading to Airport got blocked and police present had to intervene to ensure smooth flow of traffic," a police spokesman said.
"During this, some photo-journalists who were trying to approach the residence of Syed Ali Shah Geelani were requested not to proceed ahead as it would have escalated the situation. The photo-journalists remained adamant and tried to proceed ahead without giving any heed to the request of the police. They later protested alleging high handedness of police and demanded action. The higher officers of the police have taken cognizance of the matter which is being looked into," the spokesman said. (GKNN)
