Srinagar, May 23 (ANI): Police in Srinagar baton-charged and fired teargas shells to disperse agitating supporters of separatist leader and President of Democratic Freedom Party, Shabir Ahmad Shah on Friday.
The clash took place when followers of Shabir Ahmad Shah staged a demonstration after his release.
Shah, an executive member of the moderate faction of separatist alliance, Hurriyat (Freedom) Conference headed by Mirwaiz Moulvi Umer Farooq, was under detention for nine months in connection with the mass agitation for the Amarnath land row.
He was arrested under the Public Safety Act (PSA) on August 22 last year during mass agitation triggered by the land row over the Hindu cave shrine of Amarnath in the Himalayas. (ANI)
