SRINAGAR Condemning the house detention of its chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Hurriyat Conference (M) on Saturday said that entire Kashmir especially Srinagar has been turned into a military garrison ahead of the Prime Ministers visit.
“Every road is dotted with forces personnel, resistance leadership caged in their homes or police stations and massive frisking and search operations being conducted everywhere leading to harassment of general public”, Hurriyat said.
Hurriyat (M) statement further said that the way various crucial road links have been closed as part of the security measures and people left in the lurch and forced to change routes and travel through long distances, motorcycles being seized, vehicles stopped for intense frisking, erection of barricades on main roads in Srinagar is nothing but a deliberate attempt to add to the miseries of people.
