Separatist Leader Yasin Malik Arrested In Srinagar


Srinagar: Liberation Front chief of Jammu Kashmir Yaseen Malik was detained Friday night amid indications of a wider crackdown on separatists in Jammu and Kashmir, officials said.

Police and paramilitary forces have been put on high alert but there was no confirmation about any more detentions.

The action comes eight days after the terror attack on a CRPF convoy in Pulwama, in which 40 soldiers were killed.
