In a statement a spokesperson of the Front said Malik and others are lodged in Kothibagh police station while as Boya and others have been kept in Ganderbal police station.
According to JKLF statement Malik in a message from the custody has strongly condemned the ongoing atrocities, oppression and police repression in Jammu and Kashmir especially against the youth. “These atrocities are like rubbing salt on wounds. Instead of arresting killers of Gool massacre, instead of arresting those culprits who desecrated Holy Quran and the Masjid, so-called rulers in Kashmir through their police and killer forces have unleashed a reign of terror on those who stood against the tyranny and oppression. This clearly shows that Kashmir is actually a police state where so-called democratic and civil authorities are only as a cover and the real powers are with the police and the forces,” he alleged.
Meanwhile, the spokesperson said JKLF organized protest rallies throughout world especially in London, USA, UAE, Islamabad (Pakistan) and several cities of Pakistan-administrated-Kashmir. “The protests were held against the desecration of holy Quran, mosque, killings of innocent Kashmiris, arrests and imprisonment of leaders and youth including Malik and others. Kashmiris in large numbers living overseas participated in these protest programs,” he said.
