Srinagar: Separatist leader and Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani was on Monday detained by police after he tried to defy restrictions on Monday.

He was detained by police outside his residence while leading a march towards Anantnag.

Earlier on July 13, Geelani, already under house arrest, was detained by the police on the airport road outside his residence in uptown Hyderpora after he defied restrictions and tried to take out a march towards the Martyrs graveyard to commemorate the 85th anniversary of those who laid down their lives fighting the Aristocratic rule in the state in 1931.
