New Delhi: The Centre has banned Yasin Malik-led Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) under the anti-terror law.
The outfit has been banned for alleged promotion of secessionist activities in Jammu and Kashmir, Indian media reports said.
They said the organisation has been banned under various provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. Its chief Yasin Malik is under arrest and at present lodged in Jammu’s Kot Balwal jail.
This is the second organisation in Jammu and Kashmir which has been banned this month. Earlier, the Centre had banned the Jamaat-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir.
Earlier today, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had cracked down on Malik and Syed Ali Shah Geelani slapping a penalty of over Rs 14 lakh and confiscating their assets
