Amidst the unrest in Valley, a five-member civil society group led by Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar on Thursday met hardline Hurriyat Conference’s leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani.
The group, which also included Air Vice Marshal (retired) Kapil Kak, OP Shah, journalist Vinod Sharma, Khalid Tufail, met the octogenarian hardline separatist leader, Syed Ali Geelani, at his uptown Hyderpora residence in Srinagar last afternoon.
A short video has emerged showing the members of delegation meeting Geelani.
While taking his seat, Geelani said: “You have occupied the place with the help of Army.”
Earlier Thursday morning, the team called on Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, the chairman of the moderate Hurriyat group at his city outskirts Nigeen residence in Srinagar.
