Charges framed against Yasin Malik for kidnapping Mufti's sister

Jan 12, 2021 15:18 IST

A special TADA court on Monday framed charges against Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chief Muhammad Yasin Malik for the abduction of Rubaiya Sayeed, daughter of the then Union Home Minister late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, more than 31 years after the crime took place. Besides Malik, the court also framed charges against 11 other accused. Rubaiya, the younger sister of People's Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti, was kidnapped on December 8, 1989. Yasin Malik was accused of playing a key role in the kidnapping. Rubaiya was eventually released December 13 of the same year. The CBI in its charge sheet filed before the Tada court said that two dozen conspired to kidnap Rubaiya, who was then interning at Lal Ded Hospital, Srinagar, to demand the release of their associates.
