JKLF Chief Yasin Malik shifted back to jail from hospital


Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik was on Friday morning shifted back to jail after remaining admitted at SKIMS Soura for six days.

A JKLF spokesman said that Malik, who was admitted at SKIMS after developing an arm infection on weekend, was shifted back to Central Jail today morning.

Malik, who remains jailed since July 9, was shifted to SKIMS from Khyber hospital on the evening of Oct 22 after doctors advised an immediate treatment.

“A team of doctors immediately admitted him to ICU (at SKIMS) and started treating his arm that was in severe pain due to swelling and infection,” added the spokesman.

Rights bodies, activists and family members of Malik have also been calling for his release, fearing that his health might deteriorate again in the jail.
