Trial in 1990 case of killing of IAF personnel to begin next week

JAMMU: After nearly 30 years, trial in the killing of four Indian Air Force personnel in Kashmir will begin next week as a special court has issued production warrant against JKLF chief and main accused in the case Yasin Malik, officials said.

Besides Malik, who is at present in judicial custody after he was placed under arrest by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in connection with a terror funding case, warrants have been issued against three others.

The officials said that Malik was likely to be produced through video conferencing and requisite permission was being sought for that. (AGENCIES)
