Police foil JKLF’s Badami Bagh army base march, detain Yasin Malik

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik was detained on Monday after he tried to march towards Badami Bagh army base in Srinagar.

An eye witness said that Malik who had gone underground to evade arrest was detained at Budshah bridge after he took out a march towards Badami Bagh army base.

Reports said that Malik took out a march from Gaw Kadal along with his supporters, including women, and as soon as he reached Budshah bridge police swung into action.


“Police fired tear gas shells to foil the protest,” said a witness, adding that Malik was taken into custody.

Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has called for a shutdown and march to Badami Bagh army base today to protest the killings of seven civilians over the weekend in Pulwama.
