Indian police attack Yasin Malik, arrest him in injured condition

ISLAMABAD: In occupied Kashmir, Indian police assaulted and arrested the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Yasin Malik, in an injured condition in Srinagar, today.

In a statement, the JKLF said the police intercepted Muhammad Yasin Malik along with party leader, Bashir Ahmed Kashmiri in Khanyar when he was on his way to Jamia Masjid Srinagar to take part in a peaceful protest called by the Joint Resistance Leadership against the continued illegal detention of leaders, unabated killing of youth and use of brute force on students by the Indian forces.

On the other hand in a statement in Srinagar, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani demanded impartial probe by some international agency into the rape and murder of eight-year-old Aasifa Bano of Kathua. He said that the Kashmiris had no faith in the Indian judiciary due to its biased track record against the people of occupied Kashmir.

Delhi Police arrested two Kashmiri students from Indian Punjab on the charges of their involvement in hacking over 500 Indian websites, including those of the government.

Meanwhile, Foreign Office has said that continuing Indian crackdown, tear gas, shelling and caging innocent Kashmiri students on baseless pretexts shows the tragic reality of Indian Occupied Kashmir being a police state.

 In a tweet message on Saturday, Dr Muhammad Faisal said that detention of Kashmiri leaders and preventing them from protesting against continuing Indian massacre including the planned Kathua rape and killing exposes the farcical reality of Indian so called democracy. APP/AFP
