Srinagar, Oct 28: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman Yasin Malik was admitted to a hospital here in a critical condition after he was allegedly attacked by a legislator's escort here today.

Giving details, JKLF spokesman Tahir Mir said Mr Malik was on his way to Dalgate from his residence at Maisuma in a car when the vehicle was caught in a traffic jam near the Banquet Hall on the Maulana Azad road here this afternoon.

In the meantime, he said a legislator from Rajpora in south Kashmir, Syed Bashir, was also caught in the traffic jam.
