SRINAGAR —  Jammu and Kashmir authorities disallowed a one-day Hurriyat session on Saturday here and placed separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq under house arrest, reports IANS.

“One day #Hurriyat workers/delegate session barred! Put again under #HouseArrest! Rajbagh office o f Hurriyat sealed! Not allowed any space or scope for any political activity!” Umar Farooq tweeted.

“So much for practising honest democracy Governor sahab!” he said taking a dig at Governor Satya Pal Malik.

The uptown Rajbagh office of the Hurriyat group was shut down to prevent any assembly of separatist forces.
