SrinagarJammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Muhamamd Yasin Malik was Friday arrested in Srinagar a day ahead of Eid ul Azha.
According to a press statement , Malik along with zonal organizer Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri was today arrested from JKLF office Srinagar and immediately shifted to central jail Srinagar.
Prior to his arrest, JKLF chairman talked to media persons and said that, it used to be a common practice of even worst type of tyrants to release prisoners on the eve of Eids and other festivals but new kind of tyrants and oppressors take pleasure from arresting people on these very days.
He said that yesterday an ailing lady Asiya Andrabi was dragged out of hospital and shifted to Jammu jail which shows the ugly tyrant behavior of these new pseudo-democratic oppressors.
JKLF chairman said that thousands of young and old, from a 10 year old boy to 80 year old man are languishing in jails.
Many of these inmates have been serving consecutive PSAs and as soon as PSA slapped on them expires or are quashed by courts; a new PSA order is served to them, he said.
