Shabbir, Nayeem, Kalwal, Ayaz put under house arrest

Srinagar, November 28, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the authorities have placed Hurriyet leaders, Shabbir Ahmed Shah, Nayeem Ahmed Khan, Raja Merajuddin Kalwal and Ayaz Akbar under house arrest in Srinagar after their release from illegal detention. Shabbir Ahmed Shah and Nayeem Ahmed Khan were released from Rajbagh police station while Raja Merajuddin Kalwal and Ayaz Akbar from Parimpora police station.

The leaders were arrested about a month ago to prevent them from leading a march called by the veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani, towards the TRC ground in Srinagar to protest against Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi’s visit to the occupied territory on November 7. They were set free late Friday night but later the authorities put them under house detention.
