Mirwaiz Umar Farooq placed under house arrest in Kashmir

Mirwaiz, who was under house arrest in Delhi following hanging of Parliament attack convict Mohammad Afzal Guru on February 9, was allowed to return to the Valley.

He was escorted by a police posse from Srinagar Airport to his Nigeen residence and served with the house arrest order, Hurriyat spokesman said.

The Hurriyat chairman had called a press conference but the media-persons were not allowed to enter the premises of the Mirwaiz's residence, the spokesman said.

"The Mirwaiz was scheduled to visit the family of Afzal Guru after chairing a meeting of Hurriyat but the government has imposed curbs on all his activities," the spokesman said.
