Srinagar: Seven activists of JKLF today courted arrest in Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir as part of its 'fill-the-jail' agitation against alleged human rights violations, officials said.

Led by senior leader Sheikh Abdul Rasheed, the JKLF activists took out a procession in the main chowk Handwara, 90 kms from here, before courting arrest.

They were lodged in the local police station, they said.

The Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) started the agitation on June 18 when over 40 people, including its chairman Mohammad Yaseen Malik, courted arrest in Lal Chowk area of the city. All of them were shifted to Srinagar Central Jail.

18 activists of the Front courted arrest in Sopore on June 19 and 13 in Pulwama yesterday.
