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.
New Delhi, Apr 13: It comes as both a surprise and shock, when former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti condemned the arrest of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief, Yasin Malik. Incidentally he is the same man who has been accused of abducting her sister.
Malik was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in connection with a terror funding case. Malik has without a doubt been one of the most dreaded persons in the Valley and his crimes range from killing of Indian Air Force (IAF) officials, the genocide of Kashmiri pandits, just to name a few.
New Delhi, Mar 23: The Indian agencies have taken some stringent action against the separatists of Kashmir in the past couple of weeks.
Be it attaching the properties of the separatists or banning the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front, the action has been constant.
The ED said that it was attaching the properties of the Kashmir separatists. The action is being taken following charges of money laundering. The move came just days after the National Investigation Agency carried out searches at premises of separatists, including Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, in connection with a case related to funding to terror and separatists groups in Jammu and Kashmir.
New Delhi, Mar 22: The Union Government has banned the Yasin Malik Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front. The outfit led by the Kashmir separatist was banned under the provisions of the anti terror law.
The outfit has been banned for alleged promotion of secessionist activities in Jammu and Kashmir, they said.
