New Delhi, March 9: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik, who was recently seen sharing the dais with Hafiz Saeed, the mastermind of the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai and one of India's most-wanted terrorist, arrived here from Pakistan on Saturday evening. He had gone to the neighbouring country on a 40-day private visit.
Malik's proximity to Saeed at an occasion in Islamabad last month to protest the hanging of 2001 parliament attack convict Afzal Guru had created a huge uproar in the country. Supporters of Shiv Sena, a rightist outfit, protested against Malik on his arrival at New Delhi airport.
Thee JKLF leader said after his arrival from Pakistan that he did not invite Saeed, a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) member, during his hunger strike against Guru's execution.
Some media reports in India said that the government was thinking of revoking Malik's passport on grounds of national security. A probe would also be conducted into Malik's visit to Pakistan and he would be interrogated by security agencies.
Indian High Commission denied visa to Malik's wife, newborn
The Indian High Commission in Islamabad has denied visa to wife and newborn of Malik, reports said. JKLF sources said Malik had applied to the high commission for his wife Mushal Hussain Mullick and newborn girl 20 days ago but his move was rejected by the diplomatic mission. Mullick, an artist, was to come to Kashmir after their marriage in Pakistan.
