New Delhi, Apr 24: The arrest of Yasin Malik, the chief of the JKLF led to condemnation by several persons including former Jammu and Kashmir chief minster, Mehbooba Mufti and also the foreign office of Pakistan.
Mehbooba appealed to the government to release Malik due to his poor health. Further a shut down was also called in J&K to protest his arrest.
Malik has without a doubt been one of the notorious players in Kashmir. His cases date back to several decades back and over the years, he has successfully dodged the law, while continuing to propagate in favour of Pakistan.
