Hudhud times: Srinagar| Pro-Pakistan Kashmiri separatist Syed Ali Shah Geelani died at the age of 92 at his home in Srinagar late on Wednesday evening. The hardliner Islamist leader — who has been the face of the separatist politics in Jammu and Kashmir — had been ailing for long and had resigned from politics and Hurriyat last year. The funeral took place this morning.
Security has been strengthened in Kashmir Valley following his death late on Wednesday evening.
Restrictions, including suspension of internet services, have been imposed in Kashmir Valley, said Vijay Kumar, a senior police officer in Kashmir. Security has also been strengthened outside Mr Geelani’s house in Hyderpora. Mobile phone services, except that of BSNL, too have been suspended. https://www.hudhudtimes.com/
