Srinagar: A Delhi court on Wednesday sent the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik, who was allegedly arrested in connection with terror funding case, to judicial custody till May 24.
The Jail authorities have also moved an application seeking direction to produce Mr. Malik through video conferencing due to security concerns.
Earlier this month, Yasin Malik was brought to Delhi from Jammu and was later arrested by NIA in connection with a case related to the funding of terror and separatist groups in Jammu and Kashmir.
He was produced in a special court which remanded him in NIA’s custody till April 22.
On Wednesday, Former Chief Minister, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti had also appealed to the Centre to immediately release Mr. Malik due to his ailing health. “Also other members of Jamaat-e-Islami should be released. Sadhvi Pragya on whom there are several serious accusations have been set free.”
Mr. Malik was shifted to Delhi’s Tihar Jail after NIA secured his production remand. The JKLF chief was taken into preventive custody in February by the J&K police and lodged in Jammu’s Kot Balwal jail.
