Banned Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik, who has been on a hunger strike since the morning of July 22, was given intravenous fluids (IV fluids) in Delhi’s Tihar jail, ‘Mint’ reported after quoting prison officials.

“He has refused to eat anything. This is why he had to be put on intravenous (IV) fluids. We send a report about his health update to the top brass of the headquarters every evening,” remarked a prison guard who asked to remain anonymous. “The officials urged him to end his fast, but he has refused this. If need be, he could be shifted to a hospital amidst tight security.”

The leader of the outlawed Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) is serving a life sentence in a case related to militant funding. He has been moved to the prison’s medical investigation (MI) room, where staff members are continuously keeping an eye on his health and informing the prison administration, according to officials.

Having received no response from the Union government to his request that he be permitted to physically appear in a Jammu court hearing the Rubaiya Sayeed kidnapping case in which he is an accused, Malik started his indefinite strike on Friday morning. In front of a special court in Jammu on July 15, Rubaiya Sayeed named Yasin Malik as one of her captors in the well-known kidnapping by the JKLF in 1989.

In jail number 7, Malik has been held in a separate cell with tight security. In connection with the 2017 terror funding case reported to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), he was detained in the early months of 2019.
