The JKLF spokesman said that though the incarcerated Shabir Ahmad Dar, Mushtaq Ajmal, Ramiz Raja, Farooq Ahmad Sodagar, Zahoor Ahmad Butt, Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri and Ghulam Muhammad Dar were released after furnishing a personal bond but in order to prolong the detention of Malik, authorities brought up some older case of year 2014, registered at Ram Munshi Bagh police station and tried to halt his release.
“Today, instead of releasing Yasin Malik from Srinagar central jail, police presented him before judicial magistrates’ court and after a long hearing, court ordered his release from open court,” the spokesman said.
The spokesman further said that JKLF activists Meraj ud din Parray and Mudasir Ahmad who were arrested at Islamabad yesterday are still in police custody and have yet not been released.
