Srinagar, July 11: Police have extended the remand of JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik up to July 13, 2018, a party spokesperson said on Wednesday.
In a statement issued to GNS, the spokesperson said JKLF chairman was arrested on July 6 during a raid on his house and he is lodged at police station Kothi Bagh along with Umar Adil Dar of Tehreek-i-Hurriyat.
While condemning the prolonging of Malik’s incarceration, he said that caging political leaders and activists and barring them from performing their political activities is nothing but anti-democratic act.
Meanwhile, Malik in a statement expressed heartfelt grief and sorrow over the death of a child at Memander Shopian due to some mysterious blast.
“On daily basis, Kashmiris are forced to shoulder the coffins of their dear ones as illegal occupation and military suppression continues to haunt them,” Malik said, adding, “The pain of yesterday’s martyrs is still fresh when a new catastrophe has hit us snatching one more life and injuring half a dozen more among whom many are critical.”
While praying for heavenly abode of the boy, JKLF chairman prayed for the early recovery of those injured in the mysterious blast.
Meanwhile, JKLF has expressed grief and sorrow over the demise of Gulam Ud Din Dar, father of JKLF martyr Muhammad Sultan Dar of Sopore.
A party delegation comprising Zahoor Ahmad Butt, Syed Nisar Jeelani, Muhammad Altaf Gojri and Khizar Muhammad visited the residence of the deceased and prayed for his heavenly abode.
