SRINAGAR: Apprehending arrest by police, Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front( JKLF) chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik has gone into hiding ahead of his scheduled march to Lal Chowk on Monday.
A press statement from JKLF Friday said that police raided Malik’s residence at Maisuma here in the morning, but “he (Malik) had already fled from his house to avoid arrest.”
“Police searched his house, but failed to arrest him as he had gone into hiding to make Lal Chowk Chalo call a success,” it said.
Malik has called for shutdown on Monday to mark start of ‘Quit Kashmir’ movement launched to counter “the nefarious designs of RSS and BJP to change demography of the state.”
“He will lead a protest march towards Lal Chowk on June 23 against the anti-Kashmiri nefarious designs of RSS and BJP. Similar kind of processions will be taken out in many cities of Azad Kashmir, while JKLF’s supreme head Aman Ullah Khan will lead a sit in before United Nations observer’s office at Islamabad, Pakistan on June 25,” the statement said.
Meetings of all district bodies of JKLF, headed by respective district presidents, were held across the Valley for “success of the Monday’s programme,” it said.
“District bodies resolved that no stone will be left unturned in this regard,” it added.
Meanwhile, the front has condemned the indiscriminate firing on funeral procession of the slain militant at Sangeth Kulgam.
JKLF’s Kulgam president Abdul Satar and other members also participated in the funeral, the statement said.
