Srinagar: The Kashmir Economic Alliance Chairman Muhammad Yasin Khan has condemned the police action of getting senior separatist leader Muhammad Yasin Malik and his associates booked for “attempt to murder”.
In a statement, Khan who also heads the KTMF said it was unfortunate that the ailing separatist leader who heads JKLF has been booked for “attempt to murder” for merely having staged peaceful protests against rights violations in Kashmir.
Seeking intervention of the lawyers’ fraternity, Khan said when people are booked for murder for merely holding peaceful protests the state of policing can only be imagined.
Khan said the development of booking innocents for such “frivolous charges” would only set a bad precedence. Khan appealed the civil society to rise to the occasion when even raising voice against human rights abuse is being seen as a crime in Kashmir.
A court here Wednesday sent to chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front, Yasin Malik to four days remand after police brought charges of “attempt to murder” against him and his associates.
