Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chief Yasin Malik has been booked under the Public Safety Act (PSA) and is transferred to a Jammu Kot Balwal jail. Under the act, the separatist leader can be detained by the government for two years.

In the wake of Pulwama attack, last month, which had taken lives of more than 40 CRPF jawans, security cover of more than a dozen separatist leaders were withdrawn. Neither SAS Gilani nor Yasin Malik were given any security cover and hence their security wasn’t revoked. Subsequently, Yasin Malik was arrested by police in a late night raid on February 22 from his Masuma residence and taken to Kothibagh police station. On 26th February, his Srinagar residence was raided by the National Investigation Agency.

Central Bureau of Investigation has filed a plea in Jammu and Kashmir High Court demanding transfer of several cases pending on Malik to Jammu from Srinagar. HC Chief Justice has sought Malik’s response over the CBI’s plea. Next hearing of the case is on March 11. The move by CBI is seen as Central Government’s way to expedite cases against the secessionist leader and bring him to justice, as soon as possible.
