Malik arrested, shifted to central jail Srinagar

Srinagar, Nov 27: Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), Muhammad Yasin Malik was arrested by police and shifted to central jail Srinagar, a spokesman said on Monday.
The spokesman in a statement said that police Monday morning cordoned the residence of Malik and arrested him. “He was immediately shifted to central jail Srinagar,” spokesman said.
It is worth to mention that JKLF district president Bashir Ahmad Rather (Boya), along with Ghulam Geelani Rather, Fayaz Ahmad Mir and Mushtaq Ahmad Wani have already been arrested by police.
Condemning these arrests which were made in wake of a protest strike called by JRL, JKLF spokesman said that “a blanket ban on the peaceful political activities of resistance leaders and arresting Yasin Malik and placing Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Mirwiaz Umar Farooq under house arrest has become a common practice of the rulers and their Indian masters, who are not finding any courage to fight resistance camp politically.”
Meanwhile, prior to arrest and shifting to central jail Srinagar, Malik said that blanket ban on political activities, incarceration of thousands of old, young, women, men specially–abled, ailing and minors, reign of terror and torture unleashed throughout the nooks and corners of south and north of Kashmir valley, are actually glaring examples of ‘Indian state terrorism’ in Jammu Kashmir.
