Kashmir Tension: Yasin Malik, Agnivesh arrested

Srinagar, April 18: The J&K police arrested separatist leader Yasin Malik and social activist Swami Agnivesh while they were moving towards joining the protest against the arrest of traitor Masarat Alam.

The Arya Samaj leader joined Malik in his hunger strike against rehabilitation programme for the Hindu pundits.
