Time seems to have taken its toll on the separatist leader and chief of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Yasin Malik as he has become old and bald.

Malik was arrested by National Investigation Agency (NIA) in April 2019 in a case related to killing of four Indian Air Force personnel in 1990. He is also accused of funding of terror and separatist groups in J&K.

Yasin Malik was taken to Delhi after a special NIA court in Jammu gave the go ahead for his custodial interrogation by the probe agency, officials said.

The JKLF leader was shifted to Tihar jail under police protection.

The picture was shared by Yasin’s wife Mushaal Hussein Mullick on her social media.

The NIA registered a case on May 30, 2017 against separatist leaders, including unknown members of the Hurriyat Conference, who have been acting in connivance with active militants of proscribed terrorist organisations Hizbul Mujahideen, Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and other outfits and gangs.
