    "Malik was arrested when police raided the JKLF's office at Abi Guzar. He has been shifted to Central Jail, Srinagar, on a judicial remand," a spokesman of the separatist group said.

    The police did not give any reason for the arrest but it is believed to be a preventive action since Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin has given a call for agitation to observe first anniversary of its slain commander Burhan Wani on July 8.
