‘Appeals people to pray for his speedy recovery’

SRINAGAR, Oct 23: JKLF today said its chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik is severely ill and appealed people to pray for his speedy recovery.
In a statement a spokesman of JKLF said, “Yasin sahib has been admitted to SKIMS Soura after he suffered severe infection attack in his right arm and suffered from high fevers. On October 21, he was taken to a diagnostic centre for CT scan regarding a 7.7 mm stone present in his left upper urethra. He was given some injection in his right arm during the procedure that caused swelling that put him in severe pain. After CT scan, he was shifted back to central jail Srinagar but pain in his right arm and swelling started to increase fast. For full night he suffered from a high pain and fevers but was not provided with any medical remedy till the next day”.
The spokesman added that after many complaints and protests by family and friends authorities agreed to shift him to hospital and he was first taken to Khyber Hospital where doctors recommended to urgently shift him to SKIMS Soura. “He was immediately rushed to SKIMS where a team of doctors immediately admitted him to ICU and started treating his arm that was in severe pain due to swelling and infection. For the whole night all the senior and junior doctors worked hard to save his right arm and managed to reduce the swelling to some extent. Doctors have not still ruled his right arm out of danger and though pain has lessened to an extent, remaining high inflammation in his arm is still a cause of worry. His fever is also constantly varying and according to doctors may remain so till the infection is not over,” the statement detailing Malik’s health condition said.
Hailing the efforts of doctors at SKIMS who “left no stone unturned” to save Yasin arm and life, JKLF appealed people of Jammu and Kashmir to keep praying for Malik’s speedy recovery and good health.
Malik was arrested by police on July 8 in an “unhealthy condition”, the spokesman said.
“Even at the time of arrest Yasin sahib was taking high antibiotics but instead of providing him a healthy environment, authorities revengefully placed him in solitary confinement with virtually no medical facilities available. On July 30, he was shifted to central jail Srinagar and ban on his visitors remained unchanged and so did the denial of proper medical care to him. On August 30 Yasin Malik was shifted to JIC Humhama but his disconnection from the rest of the world continued. From JIC Yasin Malik was shifted to Humhama police mess but on September 19, he was again shifted to JIC Humhama and placed under solitary confinement in a cell. His health considerably deteriorated in the cell and doctors in writing recommended to authorities to keep him at some better place as he was facing grave medical problems,” the statement said.
