Yasin Malik denies hijacking rescue boat in flood-hit Jammu and Kashmir

Srinagar: Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik, who has been accused of snatching an Indian Army boat meant for relief work in flood-hit Jammu and Kashmir, has denied all such allegations.

As per reports, Malik termed the reports on him disrupting the relief and rescue work as just a poisonous propaganda by the Indian media

Malik reportedly said that if charges against him are proven true, he will quit Kashmiri politics.

He, however, did not clarify from where did he get the boat and relief material, pictures of which have been circulated on social media.

The separatist leader also went on to accuse the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) of not distributing relief material, claiming people are facing shortages.

Reports had earlier claimed that Malik was in a September 13 video seen disrupting relief and rescue operations in a flood-hit area.

As per reports, the JKLF chief and his aides hijacked a rescue boat in order to 'personally' distribute relief items.

Malik and his supporters were seen in a video - available on social media as well as broadcast by an English news channel – asking relief workers to abandon a boat so that they could carry out the rescue operation themselves. The separatists were even seen allegedly forcing ailing lady patients to disembark from the Army relief boat.
