Hurriyat claims threat from gangster

Srinagar: Hardline separatist organisation Hurriyat Conference today claimed that gangster Ravi Pujari had issued threats to its chief Syed Ali Shah Geelani and said if any harm comes to him, the responsibility will be that of the government of India.

Hurriyat spokesperson said “Pujari called the party headquarters at 8:45 pm on Friday and used unparliamentary language to threaten Geelani. Pujari called himself a patriot and asked Geelani to desist from what he called as provocative speeches.”

Geelani termed Pujari’s threats as a “childish act”, the spokesman said, adding “if anything untoward happens to the separatist leader, the responsibility will lie with Government of India.
