Ahead of joint resistance meeting Mirwaiz placed under house arrest

Srinagar: Authorities on Monday placed Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq under house arrest, sources said.
Mirwaiz was to attend the joint resistance meeting at Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani’s residence later in the day.
The resistance leaders were scheduled to address a press conference after the meeting.
“But the anti Kashmiri state resorted to its usual tactic of curbing the leadership through force,” a Hurriyat (M) spokesman said in a statement.
