Malik detained, Mirwaiz put under house-arrest
Srinagar, Jun 02: JKLF chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik was detained from his residence here, while Hurriyat-M chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq was placed under house-arrest today.
This was done as a “precautionary step” to prevent them from taking out protest marches after a youth, who was run over by a CRPF vehicle yesterday, died, a police official said.
Malik was detained from his Maisuma residence and taken to the Kothi Bagh police station, he said.
Mirwaiz was put under house arrest at his Nigeen residence, he added.
Hurriyat-G leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani continues to remain under house detention, the police official said.
