Geelani had easrlier ascertained that “if he was a free man”, he would offer his Friday prayers in Islamabad, his second home.

Geelani’s lastest detention clearly defies the claims of state police chief, K Rajendra, who recently said, “Geelani is a free man. He can go anywhere.” Syed Shah Geelani has been taken to Humhana Police station and will remain under custody till further notice.
