Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik was on Tuesday night brought to New Delhi’s Tihar Jail from Jammu’s Kot Balwal Jail by National Investigation Agency (NIA) and it is expected that Malik would be produced before the NIA court on Thursday.
Malik’s was arrested under PSA after the Centre decided to ban JKLF under the anti-terror law. Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba had said that JKLF is a separatist outfit and the Centre decided to ban it because it has a policy of zero tolerance against terrorism.
Gauba had also said that Malik was the mastermind of the Kashmiri Pandit genocide and JKLF was also involved in the murder of 4 IAF Officers in Jammu and Kashmir. Malik’s organisation is also accused of funding terrorists in Kashmir.
The Centre had decided to ban JKLF days after banning the Jamaat-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir.
