Geelani placed under house arrest

Geelani, who had called for a march at Sonawar near here to protest against the continued deployment of army in the state, was placed under house arrest this morning, they said.

The step was taken as a precautionary measure with authorities expressing fear the march may turn violent. On Wednesday, the hardline Hurriyat faction leader has called for a foot march to UN office here, alleging human rights violations in the state.
