    Srinagar: Hardline separatist leader Masrat Alam was shifted again on Friday from Srinagar to Badgam district in Jammu and Kashmir where a police complaint has been lodged against him over hoisting Pakistani flags on April 15.

    Alam was placed under house arrest on Thursday night at his Zaindar Mohalla residence in old Srinagar city to prevent him from participating in a separatist rally in Kashmir's Tral town on Friday.

    Hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani was also placed under house arrest in his upscale Hyderpora residence on Thursday.

    Alam was shifted on Friday from his residence to Shaheedgunj police station from where he has been shifted to Humhama police station in Badgam.

    Police lodged a first information report (FIR) against Alam on April 15 when he led a separatist rally for Geelani, who reached Srinagar that day after spending over three months in Delhi for treatment.

    Youths displayed Pakistani flags and shouted pro-Azadi and pro-Pakistan slogans during the rally.

    On March 7, the Jammu and Kashmir government released Alam from preventive detention after more than four years.

    He was arrested during the 2010 unrest in the Kashmir Valley. He was accused of inciting youth during the unrest in which at least 112 people were killed in clashes between mobs and security forces.
