Malik to visit Pakistan
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Mar 21: JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik will travel to Islamabad on Saturday to depose before the Special Commission, constituted by the Supreme Court of Pakistan, to probe the ‘Memogate’.
JKLF chief left Srinagar for New Delhi this morning, “Malik will be leaving for Pakistan on Saturday after he was asked by the Commission to submit his application in person,” a JKLF spokesman said here today.
The JKLF chairman had written to Pakistan Supreme Court Chief Justice Iftkhar M Chaudhury seeking permission to depose before the Commission after key player Mansoor Ijaz claimed the separatist leader had met a senior RAW official in Delhi.
Malik obtained visa from the Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi today, the spokesman said.
Ijaz had claimed Malik had met a senior RAW official at the behest of intelligence agencies of the United States.
The JKLF leader denied having ever met any of the RAW officials and said if the allegation was proved, he would retire from public life.
In a letter to the Pakistan Chief Justice, Malik stated that he had some relevant information with regard to the reference of the Commission but would not divulge these in the letter.
Malik said he would like to make a free, fair and truthful statement before the Commission which would go a long way in finding answers to the questions forming subject of the reference.
