Geelani was heckled by the audience with one of them throwing a shoe at him. ////////// "If there is no action within next 72 hours, we will use further legal rights available with us to get the accused booked. We will move court," a statement from an organisation Roots of Kashmir said. -- ///////////// Aditya Raj Kaul ////////// -- 000000000
