Police cracks down on MMM leaders
Srinagar, Mar 9: While senior separatist leaders in Kashmir continue to be under house arrest and/or lodged in different jails in the Valley, police Saturday launched a massive crackdown on Mutahida Majlise Mashawarat (MMM), an amalgam of separatist organizations, apart from second-rung leaders of various separatist and religious organizations.
Police arrested many MMM leaders after raiding their residences in the past 48 hours. The move comes ahead of MMM’s announcement for fresh protest calendar for next week on Sunday.

They said police has also arrested Dukhtaran-e-Millat’s Fehmeeda Sofi apart from other leaders including Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Ghulam Nabi Zaki and GM Nagoo.
Police has also raided residences of JKLF acting chairman Bashir Ahmad Butt and its leader Abdul Ahad Parra, sources added.
Chairmen of both factions of the Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, - continue to remain under detention at their residences.
Senior Hurriyat leaders including Shabir Ahmad Shah, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Agha Syed Hassan Al Moosvi, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza are in police lock-ups while the Hurriyat (M) leader GN Zaki has been shifted to sub-district jail Baramulla, a Hurriyat spokesman said.
