Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) leader Muhammad Yasin Malik was on Wednesday released from Srinagar Central Jail.

Malik was arrested from his uptown Maisuma residence on May 28 and lodged in Srinagar Central Jail after obtaining police remand from a court for five days.

He was arrested a day after he visited south Kashmir Tral town residence of Hizbul commander Sabzar Bhat, who was killed along with his associate Faizan Ahmad, in Saimoh village of Pulwama district on Saturday.

Sabzar Bhat had succeeded Burhan Wani as Hizbul’s commander in the valley after Wani was killed in a security operation on July 8, 2016, in Anantnag.
