New Delhi, Mar 15 (UNI) About two dozen Kashmiri pandit youths were detained by the police this afternoon from Dhaula Kuan in south-west Delhi while protesting in participation of former JKLF chief Yasin Malik in a youth conference.

The protestors said Yasin had blood on his hands and he should be tried for his crime against Kashmiri pandits in Jammu and Kashmir, according to sources.

''He is not a youth icon and should not be allowed to attend any such function on 'youth icons'. He is a terrorist and should be punished for his crimes,'' said the agitators.

The incident took place at about 1430 hrs outside Taj Palaca Hotel in Dhaula Kuan area. Police later rounded them up and detained them for some time for assembling in a prohibited area.

The function, in which Yasin Malik participated, was organised by 'Roots in Kashmir' -- an initiative of Kashmiri pandit youths.
