The police, in a series of Tweets said that firstly both sons of SAS Geelani agreed for burial of their father during night for larger interest of public, however, after sometime they behaved differently, probably under the pressure from Pakistan and resorted to anti-national activities.
“After death of SAS Geelani, IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar along with SP & ASP met both of his sons at their residence at 11pm, condoled them & requested for burial in the night for larger interest of general public due to potential major L&O situations,” Kashmir zone police Tweeted.
In another Tweet police said: “Both agreed and asked to wait for two hours until relatives reach. IGP Kashmir personally spoke to a few relatives and ensured them of safe passage. However, 3hrs later probably under the pressure from Pakistan & miscreants they behaved differently & started resorting to anti-national activities including wrapping dead body in Pakistani flag, making loud sloganeering in favour of Pakistan and instigating neighbours to come out.”
“After persuasion the relatives brought the deadbody to the graveyard and performed last rites with due respect in presence of members of Intizamia Committee and local Imam.”
Police said that the refusal of both his sons to come to graveyard indicated their loyalty to Pakistani agenda rather than their love and respect for their departed father.
