SRINAGAR: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik who was arrested by police on 20th June 2016 and was immediately shifted to central jail Srinagar is still languishing in Srinagar central jail.
From last three days his lawyers and friends have been approaching Tehsildar Srinagar south but using delaying tactics Tehsildar has till now even denied to listen the case.
According to a statement issued to KNS, Yasin Malik was arrested by police on 20th June 2016 at 10:30 am.
He was first shifted to police station Kothibagh and after one and a half hour was shifted to Srinagar central jail. Before being shifted he was not presented before any magistrate or Tehsildar but ironically Tehsildar Srinagar south who has ordered to shift him to central jail in his order has written that Yasin Malik was presented before him in person and as no one was to give his bail and he also refused to fill personal bonds he is being shifted to jail.
This order of Tehsildar is based on a blatant lie and advocates malice as Yasin Malik was never produced before him neither did Yasin Malik ever refused to take bail. This order based on a blatant lie shows how Tehsildars practically work under police SHOs in Kashmir.
While strongly condemning this nexus between police and tehsildars and lawlessness practiced by them, JKLF incarcerated chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik said that police and Tehsildars are practically raping law and justice in Kashmir. He said that a person is arrested and not produced before any magistrate but gets an order of imprisonment and even having being produced before the court.
Yasin Malik said that he had personally written a letter to chief justice of Jammu Kashmir high court in this regard but unfortunately there also such kind of a decision came that actually vindicated this lawlessness and Policegiri.
