A production warrant was issued against Yasin Malik by a special Terrorist and Disruptive Activity (TADA) court on Wednesday. According to the details, the warrant against Malik was issued in connection with the Indian Air Force (IAF) personnel killing case.

Yasin Malik who heads a banned faction named Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) is accused of being involved in the killing of four IAF personnel in Kashmir, in 1990.

Speaking about the judgement, CBI lawyer Monika Kohli said, “TADA court today issued a production warrant for Yasin Malik, the next date of hearing is December 22”.

The hearing in the case has been adjourned till December 22.

Yasin Malik, who is serving life imprisonment in Tihar Jail in a terror funding case, is an accused in this case along with others.

Yasin Malik was sentenced to life imprisonment twice.
