Geelani detained

Srinagar : Thanking the people of Shopian for observing complete shutdown in the district against the double murder and rape case of Asiya and Neelofar, Hurriyat Conference G, Syed Ali Geelani reiterated his appeal that this case should be investigated by some independent agency and culprits should be punished accordingly.

Meanwhile, Geelani is continuously under house arrest and today 30th May he was once again ‘forcibly stopped to offer Friday prayers’. While terming the action of government as unconstitutional and interference on the religious affairs, Hurriyat Conference questioned that for how long will this process continue and when will be this pro-freedom leader released.

Hurriyat G spokesman Ayaz Akbar said that Geelani was placed under house arrest at the same day when he returned from New Delhi to Srinagar on 16 April which is still continuing. “Today when Asiya and Neelofar are being remembered in the entire state, additional police forces has been deployed at Geelani residence and he has been barred 7th time in 2014 from offering Friday prayers.”
