Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik appeared before a special court here via video-conferencing on Thursday and cross-examined a witness in the 1989 kidnapping of Rubaiya Sayeed, the daughter of then Union home minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.

Earlier on Wednesday, a hearing was held in the murder case of Indian airmen. The next hearing in the matter is to be held on 23 December. Earlier, the TADA court on Wednesday issued production warrant of Malik while hearing the case of killing of Indian airmen in 1990.

The next hearing in this matter will be on 22 December. CBI’s lawyer Monica Kohli gave the information. Malik was sentenced to life imprisonment by the special NIA court on 25 May this year.

Malik has been sentenced to life imprisonment in two cases and ten years in ten cases.

All the sentences will run concurrently. Apart from this, a fine of 10 lakh rupees has also been imposed on him. Malik is also an accused in the 1989 kidnapping case of Rubaiya. The matter is to be heard on 24 November in the TADA court of Jammu.

In 1989, while returning home, Rubaiya was abducted. Instead, Malik’s organization demanded the release of five militants. Accepting this demand, the government released them, but after this the investigation was started and the investigation was handed over to the CBI.

On 25 January 1990, the incident of killing of Air Force personnel took place in Srinagar city. Five Air Force personnel were killed by the millitants.

The hearing of this case is going on in the TADA court of Jammu. Malik, involved in the case, is now “serving a sentence in Tihar Jail in a terror funding case”.

The CBI has filed chargesheets in both the cases after conducting the investigation. Both the cases are being heard in the TADA Court of Jammu. (KNS)
