Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) on Tuesday said the authorities, at the behest of "PDP-BJP government", have imposed ban on meetings with incarcerated chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik who is lodged in Central Jail Srinagar.
In a statement, a JKLF spokesman said, "Some relatives of JKLF chief went to Srinagar's Central Jail to meet with the incarcerated JKLF chairman but were not allowed to meet him stating that Malik has been banned from meeting anyone."
He condemned "dictatorial order of the rulers" saying, "Ailing JKLF chairman was arrested by police on 8th July 2016 from his residence and after keeping him in police custody for 19 days when his health deteriorated, he was taken to a hospital where doctors advised authorities to admit him in the hospital."
"Authorities instead of providing him proper medical care shifted him back to police station from where he was shifted to central jail Srinagar," he said.
Meanwhile the JKLF chairman in a message from jail strongly condemned the ongoing atrocities in Kashmir.
While strongly condemning the police action stopping shopkeepers from opening their shops during break in protest strike, Yasin Malik said that this act of police has yet again shown that government has lost its wits and is trying hard to break peoples will by military and police might.
"Shopkeepers and business men, government employees and transporters are being intimidated through police and in a bid to break people's resistance but rulers should bear in mind that their Policegiri and use of force will yield them nothing but shame," Malik said.
