Yet another major fallout of the Pulwama terror attack, the Jammu and Kashmir administration on Sunday has withdrawn security of five separatist leaders.
The five leaders whose security was withdrawn includes Mirwaiz Umar Farooq as well as Abdul Ghani Bhat, Bilal Lone, Hashim Qureshi and Shabir Shah and Shabir Shah.
However, there is no mention of pro-Pakistan separatist Syed Ali Shah Geelani in the order.
The officials pointed out that no security cover will be provided under any pretext to these five leaders and other separatists.
All security and any vehicles provided to them will stand withdrawn by today evening. No security forces or cover should be provided, under any pretext, to them or any other separatists.
PHQ will review if there are any other separatists who have Government security or facilities and will withdraw these immediately, the officials said.
