Srinagar: The authorities on Friday foiled a scheduled press conference here by senior hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani, officials said.

Geelani had called a press conference at his uptown Hyderpora residence in Srinagar where he has been placed under house arrest.

As journalists arrived outside Geelani's residence around 11 am, a large contingent of police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) intervened, asking the media persons to leave the place.

The press conference could not be held due to the intervention of the security forces.
