Hardline Hurriyat Conference Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani has been placed under house arrest ahead of a rally planned by him in south Kashmir's Anantnag town on Friday.

"Geelani has been placed under house arrest since last evening as a preventive measure," a senior police official said.

The Hurriyat hawk had called for a public rally in Anantnag town as part of his campaign to seek release of all political prisoners in the state.

He was put under house arrest last week also as he had called for a similar rally in Shopian district headquarters.
