Hilal War shifted to central Jail, Yasin Malik released after six days


Srinagar, Mar 10 (KNB): The Police on Saturday arrested the senior Hurriyat (M) leader Engineer Hilal Ahmad War while on way to Shopian and was shifter to Central Jail Srinagar. On the other hand JKLF Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik was released today, a spokesman said here.

The Hurriyat (M) spokesman while extending the sympathy with the families of slain civilians said a Hurriyat delegation led by Engineer Hilal Ahmed War was on way to Shopian but were stopped and taken into custody and shifted to Central Jail which deserves highest condemnation. He said now resistance leaders aren’t allowed to condole the killings of innocent civilians which is an irony.
The spokesman said these repressive measures by the ruling regime can’t muzzle the genuine aspirations of neither resistance leaders nor the people.
Meanwhile a spokesman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) said that the front chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik was released from central jail Srinagar today. Malik was arrested by police six days ago along with party leaders Bashir Kashmiri and Ghulam Muhammad Dar. (KNB)
