In the afternoon, police laid siege to Abi Guzar area in uptown Srinagar and adjoining areas after the Mirwaiz and Malik addressed a joint press conference outside JKLF office and chose to stage the sit-in against the "reign of terror" by troops and the ill treatment to Kashmiri prisoners in jails within and outside the state.

According to IANS, the two leaders addressed a joint press conference at the JKLF office earlier where Farooq said the continuing harassment of people in south Kashmir by security forces in the name of operations against militants was condemnable.
