Geelani not tested Covid-19 positive, keeping well: Family
The family of senior pro-freedom leader Syed Ali Geelani on Thursday refuted rumors that ailing Geelani is infected with Covid-19.
Talking to Kashmir News Service (KNS), Naseem Geelani, younger son of ailing leader said that I’m shocked over why some miscreants spread lies regarding my father? “It is unfortunate that some miscreants are spreading unfounded news about my father. Don’t know what intentions are behind it”, he said.
He also said the incarcerated Geelani is weak but keeping well. “My father is weak by due to age factor but he is keeping well as compare to winters. Covid-19 news attributed to him is absolute fake”, Naseem Geelani told KNS.
Pertinently, the 91-year-old leader recently resigned from chairmanship of Hurriyat (G), an amalgam of dozens of pro-freedom groups. However he is still a member of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat which he founded in August 2004. The senior pro-freedom leader is continued to be under house arrest at his Hyderpora residence since a decade. (KNS)
