Key leaders arrested in Kashmir(DAWN)

By Jawed Naqvi
NEW DELHI, Aug 25: Key resistance leaders, including heads of both factions of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference and Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik, were among more than 100 activists arrested in the occupied Kashmir ahead of a protest rally on Monday.

An official spokesman said Mr Malik, who had gone underground on Sunday evening, was picked up from an area in the city on Monday.

Reports said that about 100 second rank and other separatist leaders, including the Hurriyat chiefs were taken into custody during the last 24 hours to prevent them from participating in a march to Srinagar’s Lal Chowk city square — call for which was given by their Coordination Committee (CC) — spearheading the present agitation in the valley.

Indian Information Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunshi said meanwhile that the federal government would probe an attack on media personnel by the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) men when the former were performing their duty in Srinagar during the curfew.

Mr Dasmunshi said he would also speak to the Kashmir governor over the issue.

On Sunday, CRPF men had beaten up about a dozen media personnel and damaged about half a dozen vehicles of journalists in the city. The CRPF men beat up six more media persons on Monday when they were performing their duties during the curfew. The CRPF is reported to have refused to honour the media curfew passes.

Meanwhile, all local TV channels remained off the air in protest against the order of the District Magistrate directing them not to telecast news and current affairs programme.

The management of almost all the local English and Urdu Dailies decided not to publish Monday’s issue because of the indefinite curfew in the valley since Sunday, a report from Srinagar said.

PML-N nominates Saeeduzzaman
(The News)
ISLAMABAD: The PML-N on Monday nominated chief justice (retd) Saeeduzzaman Siddiqui as its candidate for the September 6 presidential election.

PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif announced the nomination of Justice (retd) Siddiqui after chairing a joint meeting of the Central Working Committee (CWC) and the parliamentary party here at the Punjab House.

“He is a true Pakistani who sacrificed his career for the supremacy of the Constitution and refused to take oath under the PCO. Moreover, he has no affiliations with any political party,” Nawaz Sharif told a news conference.

The PML-N is thankful to Justice (retd) Siddiqui for accepting its request to become its presidential candidate, he added. Talking briefly to newsmen, Justice (retd) Saeeduzzaman Siddiqui said it was an honour for him that the PML-N had nominated him as its presidential candidate.

“The PML-N is the most popular party of the country which has laid the foundation of principled politics,” he said. He added that for the first time in the history of the country, a party had campaigned for the independence and dignity of the judiciary.

He observed that at a time when the country was engulfed in crisis and a military operation was in progress in the tribal areas, there was huge responsibility on the PML-N and the PPP to steer the nation out of the crisis. “The country should not be driven to the 1971-like situation,” he said.
