A television journalist accused separatist leader Mohammad Yasin Malik of assaulting her cameraman today, while Malik lodged a police complaint saying she had barged into his bedroom to ask him questions.
TV channel India Today's correspondent Kamaljit Sandhu and cameraperson Vinod were seeking Malik's reaction on a sting operation "Hurriyat Truth Tapes" aired by their channel. "They can explain and give their version on their own".
He said that instead of showing the "brutalities" committed by the government forces in Kashmir, Indian media was running a government PR agenda. She said he accused them of trying to carry out a "sting operation" on him. "I am not concerned with what NIA has to do", he said.
In a shocking incident, chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Yasin Malik attacked a woman journalist from a prominent news channel when she visited his house for his comments on the current unrest in Kashmir. Why then is there so much dissent against them?
The JKLF Chief said that he had filed a formal complaint against the lady reporter for breaching the privacy of a person. "If the Kashmir freedom struggle was running on money, this movement should have never succeeded", he said.
Taking a dig at entire Indian media Malik said that they are rescuing the Indian state and Indian Army by doing cover-ups in their favour. "She had lied to my sister that she had fixed an appointment with me".
"On my objecting to this, she started crying and alleged that I had manhandled her".
Earlier, Malik while addressing a presser at his Abi Guzar office, said: "I was sleeping when a female TV journalist from New Delhi barged into my bedroom".
Yasin Malik challenged the Indian media to prove whether he has bought any property in the name of freedom movement.
"I entered his room without the cameraman".
