Lalchowk Chaloo Call; Mirwaiz marches towards Lal Chowk, detained
Jammu and Kashmir Police on Tuesday detained Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq after he defied his house arrest and tried to march towards Lal Chowk
A spokesperson of the amalgam said a large posse of police personnel deployed outside the Nigeen residence of Mirwaiz detained him after he defied his house arrest and tried to march towards Lal Chowk.
He said Mirwaiz was lodged at Nigeen police station.
Addressing mediapersons before his detention, Mirwaiz said people of Kashmir should remain united as they exhibited the unity during protests against assault on Article 35-A.
Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has called for a march to Lal Chowk today to protest the killing spree and Kulgam “carnage”.
Mirwaiz said people of Kashmir and Hurriyat resistance leadership can’t afford killings each day. “…people of Kashmir have lost faith in inquires and probes ordered from last 30 years,” he said.
