chandigarh Updated: Sep 22, 2012 15:50 IST

All the separatists leaders barring chairman of breakaway Hurriyat Conference (HC) Syed Ali shah Geelani, who were put under house arrest, have been released on friday evening.

The separatists leaders were put under house arrest while several were taken into custody to maintain peace following call for demonstrations after Friday prayers by different organisations in protest against anti-Islam movie made in the US.

A spokesperson for the breakaway HC Aiyaz Akbar said Geelani remained under house arrest.

He said a large number of security forces remained deployed outside his Hyderpora residence.

However, all other separatists leaders who have been put under house arrest were released.
