Srinagar: Syed Ali Geelani hospitalised after complaining of chest pain

Hurriyat Conference leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani has been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of a hospital in Srinagar after he complained of chest pain late last night.

The 87-year-old complained of uneasiness and chest pain and was admitted to SKIMS Hospital for treatment, a close aide of the separatist leader said.

According to Doctors at the hospital, Geelani has been admitted to the ICU and his condition is stable.


A spokesperson of Hurriyat has said that Geelani is stable and requested people to pray for his speedy recovery.

“Abbu complained of chest pain and at about 2 AM we rushed him to SKIMS. Doctors on duty conducted tests and admitted him in ICU. Conditions are stable. All are requested to pray for speedy recovery,” News 18 quoted as Geelani’s son Naseem Geelani saying.

The separatist leader, Geelani, stayed back in Kashmir this season and did not follow his annual practice of shifting to Delhi during winter to escape from the cold-related health complications.
