Hurriyat chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani Friday accused the government of preparing a “kill list” to eliminate those who “have not succumbed to their machinations”.

He released a video and the text of his address after the state government did not allow him to meet reporters at his home. “The current phase of the freedom struggle against India has so unnerved the occupier… that they have resorted to vilest means… we have learnt that they have formulated a kill list, whereby they have identified pro-freedom leaders and activists and those civil society members, business leaders, government employees and journalists, who have not succumbed to their machinations,” he said.
