My rights are being snatched despite L-G saying there is no curb. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Hurriyat leader

As soon as the vehicle of Mirwaiz reached the main gate of his residence, two cops asked him to return home. “The L-G has announced that I am a free man. Why am I being stopped?” he asked the police officers.

One of the officers responded that a security review was going on due to which he would not be allowed to leave. Mirwaiz said his rights were being snatched despite the L-G making a clear statement that there are no curbs on his movement.
