Yasin Malik Goes On Hunger Strike In Delhi’s Tihar Jail

New Delhi- Kashmiri separatist leader Yasin Malik is on a hunger strike in the Tihar jail here, officials said on Saturday.

While jail officials refused to comment on the reason behind Malik’s hunger strike, sources said he alleged that he was not getting a fair trial.

A senior jail official said Malik started his hunger strike on Friday morning.

The chief of the banned Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) was convicted in a militant funding case by a Delhi court in May and is serving varying jail terms, all running concurrently.

Malik has been kept in a separate cell in jail number seven under heavy security.

He was arrested in early 2019 in connection with the 2017 terror funding case registered by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
