Will consider Yasin Malik a murderer only when courts tell so: John Dayal, in presence of murdered IAF official’s widow

Squadron Leader Ravi Khanna, 38-year-old at that time, was killed by Malik and his JKLF terrorists. 26 bullets were allegedly fired on Khanna. 4 IAF personnel were killed and 40 were injured by Malik and his associates in Srinagar that day.

‘Activist and intellectual’ John Dayal has stated in a debate on Times now that he will consider Yasin Mallik a murderer only after the courts see him as a murderer. He made this statement in the presence of Nirmala Khanna, the wife of late Sqn Ldr Ravi Khanna, who was killed by Mallik on January 25, 1990.

During the discussion, Dayal made a grandstanding that ‘blood will out’ and those who have committed murders will be punished someday. He also slammed the BJP for being in a coalition government with PDP in Jammu and Kashmir for 4 years. When anchor Padmaja Joshi asked Dayal whether he will call Yasin Malik a murderer now, Dayal stated that he will call him a murderer only when the courts find him guilty of murder.

Sqn Ldr Ravi Khanna was one of the four Indian Air Force personnel killed by Yasin Mallik and other JKLF terrorists when they had attacked IAF personnel who were waiting at Sant Nagar Crossing to board their buses on January 25, 1990. 40 personnel, including a female official, were injured at that shootout led by Malik himself.

Squadron Leader Ravi Khanna, only 38-year-old at that time was killed by Yasin Malik. Malik had allegedly fired 26 bullets on Khanna.
