Ahead of his arrest, the spokesman said Malik while condemning the ongoing “military onslaught” especially in south Kashmir, said that “when killing humans becomes a glorified act and is termed as special day by officers in uniform, it can only be termed as shocking and barbarity.
“This is no bravery but utmost cowardice over which only those who have lost human instinct and conscience can feel proud and boastful,” the spokesman quoted Malik as saying.
The spokesman also said that police today raided JKLF office and arrested its zonal organizer Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri from there. He was shifted to Kothibagh Police Station.
