Indian forces detain top Kashmiri separatist leader

SRINAGAR: A top Kashmiri separatist leader has been arrested for leading an anti-India protest march and raising pro-Pakistan slogans earlier in the week.

According to Police officer K. Rajendra, Masarat Alam was arrested on Friday under India’s unlawful activities act.

He said police put two other separatist leaders, Syed Ali Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, under house arrest to prevent them from leading a planned march Friday to protest the killing of a militant commander’s brother in India-held Kashmir.

The Indian army said the man was killed in a gun battle along with another militant on Monday, while his relatives and angry locals said he was tortured to death.

Indian forces have been fighting a separatist insurgency in the region since 1989.
