A series of videos reveal that the body of separatist Syed Ali Shah Geelani was wrapped in the Pakistan flag before it was taken into custody by the Jammu and Kashmir police who gave him a quiet burial on Thursday. 

The police said a case has been registered under the anti-terror law, UAPA. 

The 92-year-old Hurriyat leader and a pro-Pakistan separatist died on Wednesday evening. 

In one of the videos, several people, including women are spotted around Geelani’s body, wrapped in a Pakistani flag. 

"FIR has been registered into all anti-national activities," said Dilbag Singh, Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police.

Singh said there were a lot of anti-national sloganeering and attempts were made to instigate people by using social media and phone calls. 

"We never expected such unruly behaviour by the family and other people at Geelani house especially since the police was in regular touch with the family and Geelani Sahab. In fact, Geelani Sahab gifted a book to one of our officers when he visited him last week," said Singh. 

For the last three days, restrictions have been imposed across Kashmir. All shops are closed and public transport is off the roads.
