Srinagar: Authorities on Monday foiled the meeting between resistance leaders, Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik, sources said.
They said that while as Geelani is continuously undergoing house detention since long, Mirwaiz was placed under house arrest at his Nigeen residence. Malik was arrested early today and lodged in Police station Maisuma.
The three pro-freedom leaders were scheduled to address a press conference after the meeting at Geelani’s Hyderpora residence which according to Hurriyat (G) sources was cordoned by extra policemen.
According to sources the three leaders had to discuss the situation arisen after the recent NIA raids on different pro-freedom leaders, activists and businessmen.
