SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik was released on Saturday from jail in occupied Kashmir.
Malik was released from Central Jail on Saturday evening, according to JKLF spokesman, and he has reached his home.
Malik was shifted to jail on Thursday from Soura Medical Institute where he was admitted for an arm infection.
The health of incarcerated Hurriyat leader Yasin Malik had deteriorated and was shifted to the Intensive Care Unit in a critical condition.
The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) leader was in inhumane conditions under illegal detention of Indian occupying forces. According to reports from Kashmiri media, Yasin Malik was under observation at the ICU at a local private hospital in Srinagar.
Sources said Malik’s right arm has been infected and he has undergone various tests at the hospital. Quoting sources, the Kashmir Media Service said he was advised by doctors to undergo a surgery and being referred to a different hospital.
The family of Malik’s wife, Mishaal Malik, confirmed the news. Mishaal fainted upon hearing news of her husband’s critical condition, said her mother.
“They have apparently used a bad injection on his right arm, which has caused extensive swelling and has rendered it unusable,” she said.
Mishaal Malik, who resides in Pakistan, had recently claimed in a press conference that her husband’s condition was not stable and was being kept in inhumane conditions by Indian forces.
“The Indian Army has not let Yasin take his medicines or eat food for one and a half months now. He has not had a drop of water to drink since the last six days,” she had said at the press conference earlier this month.
