Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik was arrested from Abi Guzar by police on Tuesday ahead of his scheduled function of Joint Resistance leadership(JRL).
Sources said that Malik was scheduled to attend a function of JRL to commemorate the 50th death anniversary of late Moulana Yusuf Shah at Aali Masjid.
A large posse of police reached Abi Guzar Tuesday afternoon from where they arrested Malik.
