Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front
(JKLF) chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik and four other party
leaders were taken into preventive custody ahead of a public
meeting in Kupwara district of north Kashmir on Friday, officials
said here.

Malik alongwith senior party leaders Mohammad Iqbal
Gandroo, Mir Mohammad Zaman, Mohammad Yaseen Bhat and Mohammad
Amin Jan were detained at Chogal, 75 kms from here, this
afternoon, they said.

They said the JKLF leaders were on way to Handwara to
address a public meeting when they were detained by police as
a precuationary measure to maintain law and order.

Strongly condemning the detention, the party said this is
the second time the separatist leader was prevented from
visiting Handwara to meet the people during the past few
months.

"Handwara visit was part of the `meet the people`
programme of the party. JKLF organised a number of public
meetings throughout the state but there was no law and order
problem anywhere," Secretary Information Ashraf-bin-Salam
said.

JKLF will not be cowed down by such acts and will
continue its meet the people programme in future to garner
support for the ongoing struggle for complete freedom, he
said.
