Malik arrested, released on bail

Srinagar, Dec 29: Police on Saturday arrested the chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on the charges of “fuelling trouble” after the body of the renowned human rights activist Jaleel Andrabi was recovered from river Jehlum in 1995. However, Malik was later released on bail, a spokesman of the Front said in a statement.         
  “The case is related with the martyrdom of advocate Jalil Andrabi in 1995. After Andrabi was abducted by the Rashtriya Rifles massive protests broke out across the Valley and people kept on searching for him. His body was found a few days after from river Jehlum. Malik and other JKLF activists tried taking his body to his hometown for the last rites. But the funeral procession was attacked by the police and other forces and even the vehicle in which Malik was traveling was fired upon. Malik had a narrow escape,” he added.
 “The immense pressure from the world bodies compelled the rulers to declare that that the killers of Jalil Andrabi would be brought to justice. A case was filed and the court found Indian Army and its Major Awtar Singh guilty of Jalil Andrabi’s murder. Till date nobody has been arrested or sent to jail for that brutal act. Instead of providing justice a new case has been framed against Malik in this regard. This shows that JK is governed by police and army alone.”
