New Delhi: Yasin Malik, head of banned terror organisation JKLF, is facing multiple criminal charges and has started making complaints against the Jail administration, Christian Michel way.

Malik was transferred from a jail in Jammu and Kashmir to Delhi’s Tihar jail.

After he went on a hunger strike while in NIA custody, he spent two days in Ram Manohar Lohia hospital. He has now started asking jail authorities to shift him from the high security ward to a different ward. Malik has complained that he is feeling isolated in his cell, exactly like Michel said. 

He has also given an example of the facilities provided to Michel and has also asked for the same. Tihar jail has responded to these requests and has even hinted at Michel’s demands being an issue.

Advocate Avi Singh, appearing for Tihar Jail this week, has said that the unequal treatments are continuing and other inmates have also started demanding the same provisions. 

Similarly, Yasin Malik who has spent just a few days in Tihar Jail has also started complaining about the food. After going on a long hunger strike he has now started eating the food provided.

"There is a threat on Yasin Malik’s life because of which he is under strict watch and not allowed to meet other inmates. Also, his jail cell is not close to the cells of other inmates and he is complaining that jail authorities are not allowing him to meet other inmates and keeping him isolated," a senior Tihar Jail official said.

Jail authorities have briefed Yasin Malik about security concerns due to which he has been kept under strict watch. They have also told him that he will also be given the same food which other inmates are being given.

Yasin Malik was arrested in a terror funding case by the NIA. His organisation, Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), is facing charges of kidnapping and murder for being allegedly involved in abducting Rubaiya Sayeed, daughter of the then Union Home Minister, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, in 1989, and killing four Indian Air Force personnel in 1990. 

The organisation was recently banned under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act by the Ministry of Home Affairs.
