Jammu Kashmir liberation front (JKLF) has condemned the alleged "siege" laid around the residence of JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik and deployment of police on motor cycles, who are chasing the Front chairman for the past few days.
In a statement here, a JKLF spokesman said, "From past few days many police personnel in civvies have started chasing Malik wherever he goes. This has not only resulted in interference in privacy but its also jeopardizing the safety of those friends and relatives whom Malik meets."
He said, "This new police tactic to stop Malik from meeting people is not acceptable and it is actually a threat to his safety, security, privacy and family life. JKLF besides looking for other possible options is also going to move court of law against this police highhandedness. In this regard, Malik met President of Bar Association Advocate Mian Abdul Qayoom and decided to move court in this connection," the spokesman said.
Meanwhile, JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik has expressed his heartfelt grief and sorrow over the demise of mother of slain resistance leader Muhammad MaqboolIlahi, and veteran Kashmiri poet and intellectual JenabGhulamNabiFiraq sahib. "JKLF chairman visited the bereaved family of Firaq and expressed solidarity with them. JKLF chairman then travelled to Machowa where he visited the bereaved Ilahi family and expressed condolences on the demise of their mother," the spokesman added.
