JKLF chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik was arrested Sunday morning from his Srinagar residence in Maisuma near Lal Chowk, the police said. Malik has been shifted to central jail in Srinagar,  police official informed.

The JKLF chairman had visited the residences of slain Hizbul Mujahideen militants Sabzar Ahmed Bhat and Faizan Muzaffar in Tral area of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Saturday. The two militants were killed in an encounter with the security forces in Soimoh area of Tral.

Malik and chairmen of both factions of Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, have called for a two-day shutdown in the Valley to protest the killing of the two militants and the use of “brute force” against the protestors. The separatist trio has also called for a march to Tral on Tuesday to pay tributes to the two militants.

        Instead of carrying on with barbaric actions vs innocent kashmir ppls, maybe india need to have a look on the other side of kashmir. Ppls in stani kashmir are living in peace. Get the army out of kashmiris cities and let the ppls live in peace.

          Get rid of art 370, integrate Kashmir with India and open the borders. We had enough of Nehru's Abdulla policies. This is the only way to get rid of snakes there. SAVE KASHMIR

            Arrest? Army is wasting time. Encounter is the solution. Just shoot a bullet you only lose a bullet.

                Arrest them for inciting violence. Check their computer files for texts that invite violence and if they are funding these activities. Also if they are in communication with Pak istan terrorists. Also see if they have any weapons in their homes.

                  Good that he has been arrested. Now feed him and other Porkis slow poison, which killed Yasser Arafat and Sunanda Pushkar. They all should be eliminated slowly.
