Chairman of Moderate Hurriyat Conference Mirwaiz Umer Farooq along with his nearly a dozen colleagues was today detained by police for violating prohibitory orders clamped in the city, officials said.
Mirwaiz and others were detained at tourist reception centre here when they were heading towards the office of the United Nations Military Observers Group for India and Pakistan at Sonawar to submit a memorandum regarding alleged “unabated” human rights violations in Kashmir, they said.
The police first asked Mirwaiz and his colleagues to disperse as prohibitory orders were clamped in the city but when they refused, the police swung into action and forcibly bundled them into a vehicle and lodged them in Khotibagh police station, they said.
