Srinagar: Tehreek-i-Hurriyat Chairman Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai was arrested on Sunday morning by police from his Baghat Barzulla residence.
Offical sources told GNS that a police party arrested the elderly leader at around 5:30 AM.
Confirming it to GNS, a top police officer said that details as regards his arrest would be shared later.
Sehrai is the chairman of Tehreek-i-Hurriyat which was previously headed by Syed Ali Shah Geelani. Geelani stepped down from the chair last year citing health reasons but continues to be its founding member and patron. Geelani also recently resigned from APHC(G), popularly known as Hurriyat Conference, as its ‘all time chairman’.
Hurriyat Conference is a amalgam of various groups and Tehreek-i-Hurriyat is one of it.
Sehrai’s son, Junaid Sehrai, District commander of Hizbul Mujahideen for Srinagar, was recently killed in an encounter along with his associate at Nawakadal area of Central Kashmir district. GNS
