Gilani was placed under house arrest on Saturday after the execution of Parliament attack accused, Afzal Guru, at Tihar Jail.

"If the police could indulge in such shameful acts - to use Justice Katju's words -in the Capital under the nose of the central authorities, it is not hard to imagine the gravity of excesses, elsewhere," KK Katyal, president, South Asia Media Commission (India) said.
