The J&K administration announced on Sunday that it was withdrawing security cover of five separatist leaders, including Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
According to a media report, the Administration officials have said that it would “under no circumstances” provide security cover to separatists.
The step comes in the wake of Pak-sponsored Pulwama attack which killed 40 CRPF personnel. The issue was discussed by the authorities with Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
Many separatist leaders have been availing government security and most of their guards have been provided by Jammu and Kashmir Police.
The separatist leaders who have been given security are Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, senior Hurriyat (M) leaders Professor Abdul Gani Bhat and Moulana Masroor Abass Ansari, Jammu and Kashmir People’s Independent Movement (formerly People’s Conference), Bilal Gani Lone, senior Hurriyat (M) leader, Hurriyat (G) leader Aga Syed Hasan Almosvi Alsafvi and Saleem Geelani.
“There were some elements in Kashmir who are “paid” by ISI and the administration has been directed to review their security,” Home Minister Rajnath Singh had told reporters in a press briefing on Friday.
