All Parties Hurriyat Conference hardline faction chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani Tuesday claimed he has been placed under house arrest though police denied any knowledge of the move.

A police contingent sealed his residence at Hyderpora early in the morning and asked him not to venture out of the house, Geelani said.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police H K Lohia said he had no knowledge about the restrictions imposed on Geelani's movement.

Geelani said he was to receive Dukhtaran-e-Millat president Asiya Indrabi outside the court as she was expected to get bail today.
