TADA court orders physical presence of Yasin Malik in Rubaiya Sayeed kidnapping case


A special court in Jammu has ordered the leader of the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), Muhammad Yasin Malik, to appear in person in the December 1989 kidnapping case of Rubaiya Sayeed, sister of Mehbooba Mufti, former prime minister and president of the People’s Democratic Party. .

Rubaiya herself appeared before a special court dealing with matters of TADA law after it issued a court order against her on the date of its last hearing for her non-appearance.

TADA was an anti-terrorism law that was in effect between 1985 and 1995. Several cases registered under this law are still in various stages of the legal process.

CBI attorney-at-law Monika Kohli said lawyers for the other accused in the Rubaiya case were cross-examined today. “The TADA court issued a production order against Yasin Malik and instructed the Tihar prison authorities to nominate him at the next hearing date on October 20,” she said.

Malik had asked the court to have him physically appear in court to question witnesses in the case. Rubaiya named the JKLF chief, who was sentenced to life in prison on July 15 in 1989 and is currently imprisoned in Tihar, as his kidnapper.

Rubaiya, the daughter of the then Union Minister of the Interior, Mufti Muhammad Sayeed, was kidnapped by JKLF militants on the evening of December 8 and held hostage until December 13, 1989, in exchange for the release of five ultras.

According to the CBI, several suspects have already confessed and revealed their involvement in the kidnapping of the then-Minister of the Interior’s daughter.

In January last year, the CBI, with the help of special prosecutors Monika Kohli and SK Bhat, filed charges against ten people, including Malik, in the Rubaiya kidnapping case, which proved to be a turning point in the valley’s turbulent history. The release of the five JKLF members was seen as a morale boost for terrorist organizations that then emerged.
