Srinagar: Geelani was detained from outside his residence by police on Friday. A huge force had gathered outside his Hyderpora residence and caught him as he stepped out of his house to leave for his Islamabad jaunt earlier this morning.
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.
