Ailing Yasin Malik moved to ICU

Islamabad—Kashmiri freedom movement leader Yasin Malik has been moved to intensive care after his health deteriorated critically on Saturday, family sources said. According to them, Yasin was admitted into the intensive care unit (ICU) of the Sher-e-Kashmir Medical Institute in Srinagar after his left arm ceased to function. They added that his wife, Mishal Malik, also fell unconscious upon learning of her husband’s health and was also receiving medical treatment.
Yasin – who heads the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) – had earlier been moved to the central jail in Srinagar from JIC Hamhaama. He was being kept in solitary detention at the JIC, due to which his health deteriorated sharply. Yasin had been suffering from various diseases and doctors had repeatedly advised authorities to shift him to a better place with adequate medical facilities. Despite their recommendations, the JKLF chairman was still kept in solitary confinement. Yasin was arrested from his residence on July 8.
