Srinagar: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik, who was arrested by police today and lodged at police station Kothi-bagh, was released from custody in the evening.
Malik was arrested by police today from JKLF office at Abi-Guzar.
A JKLF spokesman, in a statement said that he was released around 7 PM Thursday.
In an earlier statement, the spokesman had said that prior to his arrest by police, Malik while speaking to media persons who had gathered outside JKLF office, said that rulers and the state wants to divide Kashmiri nation and promote state of anarchy here and it is the duty of all young, old, men and women of Kashmir to remain vigilant and steadfast to safeguard our unity and oneness.
“JRL had called for a peaceful protest at Jamia Masjid on Friday 4th December 2019, against its desecration by some miscreants. This was not a political rally, Jalsa or program but a gathering to boost unity among the ranks and files of common people and eradicate anarchy and hatred from our society. But police authorities have chosen to take us in custody and disallow Jamia Masjid program and hence promote anarchy and chaos in Kashmir,” the spokesman had quoted Malik as saying.
