Occupied Kashmir: lawyer of Yasin Malik terms allegations baseless
In occupied Kashmir, the lawyer of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik has denounced the allegations by India’s National Investigation Agency against his client terming them as an exercise to malign the JKLF chief.
Talking to newsmen, Malik’s lawyer Raja Tufail said Indian authorities have tried to dig up every evidence and to stick various properties on him but have failed.
The NIA alleged that Muhammad Yasin Malik got 15 lakh rupees from a businessman, Zahoor Watali in 2015, and that some of the money is used to fuel uprising in the Valley in 2016.
Rejecting the allegation about transaction, Tufail said in this whole transaction Yasin Malik is just a witness and the transaction happened in the presence of a lawyer.
