Hours after Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, filed a complaint against a woman journalist of a New Delhi based news channel, police has registered an FIR against the journalist. The cameraman was waiting outside.

Talking about the recent sting operations against some Hurriyat leaders, Malik said he is not in a position to talk on their behalf.

The journalist alleged that the JKLF leader roughed her up, pushed her out of the house and assaulted her colleagues and broke her mobile phone.

He said calling our people, who sacrifice their lives for Kashmir, paid agents was a shame on the TV channels that aired such stories.

"She had lied to my sister that she had an appointment with me".

"I was sleeping and all of a sudden, a female TV journalist from New Delhi barged into my bedroom on the pretext of interviewing me". I snatched her mobile phone and asked her to leave my bedroom.

He said that the gesture of the journalist triggered his anger and he snatched her phone.

Malik said that the lady journalist who identified herself as Kamaljit Sandhu from Aaj Tak news channel "entered in my bed room while I was asleep without my permission and straight away started questioning me".

He alleged that the Indian media was taking diktats from the army to defame the freedom movement in Kashmir.

A senior police official said the police had received a complaint.

The journalists were attacked by Yasin Malik when they sought his reaction over the allegations that separatist leaders and their groups in Kashmir are receiving funds from Pakistan to promote unrest in the Valley.

Malik on Friday said if anybody could prove that he owned any property other than his ancestral home in Maisuma area of Srinagar, he would give up his political career. Find us on Facebook too!
