Another Hurriyat leader, Mushtaq Ajmal, also appeared in a separate case that was also scheduled for today in the same court.
The charges were framed officially today against all of them while as the decision was already made public through media almost three weeks ago.

Earlier, on March 16, last year, presiding officer of TADA court in Jammu had also framed fake charges against Yasin Malik and others for killing four IAF men in 1990.
