Intimidating Kashmiris by NIA, ED aggression, killings not possible: JKLF
Srinagar, Jul 06 (KNS): Chairman of JKLF Muhammad Yasin Malik has been arrested by police early today, a spokesman said.
According to the statement issued to KNS, the JKLF spokesman said that a large contingent of police cordoned his residences in the wee hours of morning today, raided his room and arrested him. “After the arrest, he was immediately shifted to KothiBagh Police station,” Spokesman said.

He said that imposing restrictions to suppress people’s voices is no democracy but worst kind of dictatorship which Indian rulers are practicing under the grab of biggest democracy.
Terming the crackdowns in Shopian, Pulwama, Kulgam and other parts of Kashmir Valley, as ‘worst oppression’, JKLF leader said that beating and torturing common people without the discrimination of age and gender, vandalizing and destroying their properties, arresting young boys and torturing them, humiliating elders and community leaders has become an order of the day which is highly condemnable.
