New Delhi, Mar 22: A lot is spoken about Yasin Malik when it comes to terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir. However there is another element in the system who was equally notorious for all the atrocities against the Kashmiri Pandits. He goes by the name Javed Nalka.
Nalka who was working as a municipality worker was almost a forgotten name. However justice was served largely after 30 years when Nalka was arrested in connection with the killing of four Indian Air Force Personnel. The attack was carried out by the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front of which both Nalka and Yasin Malik are part of.
Javed Nalka Mir was named as an accused in the IAF case along with Yasin Malik and others. He shot to fame when Malik was arrested between 1990 and 1994 for his role in terrorism in the Valley. It was during this period that Nalka became the acting chairman of the JKLF.
