No restrictions on Geelani: Police

Srinagar, Apr 03: Police on Tuesday claimed that the allegation of Syed Ali Shah Geelani that appeared in certain local newspapers of the Valley, that he has been kept under the continued house arrest is baseless and far from the facts. “He is not under house arrest and is free to go wherever he wants,” a police spokesperson said in a statement. “Geelani has been in New Delhi for quite some time and has come back to Srinagar on April 2. He resides in Hyderpora area and his house is on general road which leads to International Airport, Police Headquarter, Vigilance Organization, Indian Telephone Industries and other civil establishments as such the area remains under constant movement of VVIPs of civil/SFs as well as political and government personnel,” he added. The spokesperson said, as such, the area remains always under constant supervision of the Police personnel “to counter any mischief that may be committed by any anti social elements to disturb the law and order situation or cause any damage to the public property.” Therefore, any vigil kept on the road which is nearer to the house of Geelani is for the purpose of ensuring safety of the area and the installation, thus presence of the police personnel on the road should not be linked with the movement of Geelani,” he claimed.
