Air Force killing: TADA Court frames charges against Yasin Malik, others after three decades

Jammu: The TADA Court on Saturday framed charges against Yaseen Malik and others in the much-publicised Air Force killing case, after 30 years.
Presiding Officer of TADA Court Subash C Gupta framed charges against Malik, Ali Mohd Mir, Manzoor Ahmed Sofi alias Mushtafa, Javed Ahmed Mir alias Nalka, Nana ji alias Saleem, Javed Ahmed Zarger and Shoukat Ahmed Bakshi for offences under Sections 302, 307 RPC, Section 3 (3) and Section 4(1) of TADA Act,1987 and Section 7/27 of Arms Act 1959 r/w Section 120- B of RPC.
Shalini Khanna alias Nirmal Khanna, widow of Squadron Leader Ravi Khanna, in an interview to UNI in 2019, had said that justice should be delivered to her and Malik should be sent to the gallows.
”Yasin Malik not only murdered my husband, but also killed my mother-in-law, my father-in-law and my mother. My two kids lost their childhood. Our happiness was snatched away in a second. This terrorist turned our world upside down,” she said.
The court on September 7, 2019, had issued non-bailable warrants against Malik and others, for their alleged involvement in the killing of four Indian Air Force (IAF) personnel in Kashmir in 1990.
