Authorities on Thursday foiled a meeting convened by the Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani at his residence, sources said.
“Forces did not allow anybody to enter the residence of Geelani”, a Hurriyat spokesman said.
He said police had erected barricades on way leading to Geelani’s residence.
Additional deployment of police and CRPF men were made around the residence of octogenarian pro-freedom leader who is undergoing house detention since 2010.
Hurriyat (G) spokesperson Ghulam Ahmad Gulzar claimed that police arrested most of its members ahead of the scheduled meet.
