J&K: Hurriyat leader Masrat Alam arrested

Oct 19, 2010 08:21 AM IST India India

Srinagar: Hardline Hurriyat Conference leader Masrat Alam, seen as the spearhead of street protests and stone-pelting in Kashmir Valley for the past four months, was arrested here on Monday night.

Underground since June this year, Alam, Muslim League chief, was apprehended in Tailbal locality on the outskirts of the city, officials said.

He was whisked to an undisclosed destination for questioning, they said.

Alam, considered to be close to pro-Pak Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, had dodged police for the past four months.

He would be booked under the Public Safety Act (PSA), official sources said.

They said curfew was likely to be imposed tomorrow in the city and some parts of the Valley as a precautionary measure.

Muslim League is a constituent of the hardline faction of the Hurriyat, headed by Geelani.
