In a major development in the separatist camp, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai on Monday replaced Syed Ali Geelani as the chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat.
According to the Hurriyat sources, TehreeK-e-Hurriyat led by Syed Ali Geelani held a meeting at its office in Srinagar and elected senior member Sehrai as the party chairman.
Geelani, however, will continue to remain the chairman of his faction of Hurriyat Conference. The replacement is seen as a major development and it would also rest all speculations that who would lead separatist movement after aged Geelani.
