Srinagar: Ahead of a meeting called by the Hurriyat Conference following raids conducted by NIA on residences of separatist leaders in connection with terror funding, the Jammu and Kashmir police on Monday sealed the entrance to separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s residence and took separatist leader and Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Muhammad Yasin Malik into preventive custody and lodged him in a police station.

Preventing the separatists from holding their meeting at the residence of Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Geelani, the authorities also placed Mirwaiz Umar Farooq under house arrest.
