As the din over passport issuance to Syed Ali Geelani seems settling down, the Hurriyat patriarch was released Friday morning from his House detention and is on his way to Regional Passport Office which is located on the Dal banks in Srinagar.
Notably, Geelani has applied for passport, as Hurriyat statements read, to see his ailing daughter who is settled in Saudia Arabia.
Sources said that the police have left the residential house of Geelani.
Geelani’s application for passport saw huge political storms with union Home Ministry issuing statements and ruling coalition partner in J&K government, PDP, supporting the same on “humanitarian grounds”.
Geelani has last month applied ‘online’ for the passport and he was given an appointment with Passport Officer today (June 05 @ 10:15 AM). His other two family members have already completed biometric formalities for the passport issuance.
