NEW DELHI: After meeting the separatist leader Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, the Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit will host another separatist delegation in the national capital on Monday.

Hurriyat Conference Chairman Mirwaiz Umer Farooq will attend the Pakistan Day celebrations being held at the Pakistan High Commission today. 

According to the reports, the Pakistan High Commission has also invited Kashmiri separatist leader Masarat Alam who was recently released by the Mufti Sayeed government.

"The Hurriyat leaders will discuss various aspects of Kashmir issue and apprise the Pakistan High Commissioner about the ground situation in Kashmir," a Hurriyat spokesman said.

The Narendra Modi government had cancelled Foreign Secretary-level talks in August last year after Basit had met Kashmiri separatist leaders ahead of their meeting, ignoring calls by the Indian government not to go ahead with it.
