In occupied Kashmir, the puppet authorities have placed the Chairman of Hurriyat forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq under house detention and arrested Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik in Srinagar, today.
According to media sources, the detentions came in the wake of a programme announced by the joint resistance leadership in connection with the 50th death anniversary of renowned Kashmiri politician and religious leader, Mirwaiz Maulana Yusuf Shah in Srinagar, today. Police also placed Advocate Shahid-ul-Islam under house arrest. The arrests were made to stop the leaders from attending the programme.
