Srinagar, Feb 28: A Kashmiri Pandit activist was detained by police on Friday, amid reports that he was planning to take out a march in the city, official sources said.

Satish Mahaldar was detained as soon as he arrived at the Srinagar airport and was taken to the Kothibagh police station, they said, adding that he was later let go.

There were reports that the activist was planning to organise a peace march from the Lal Chowk to the Safa Kadal area.

Mahaldar, however, said he had not planned any rally but had come to Srinagar to attend a program on Sufism.
