Srinagar: The Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik was on Saturday released from the central jail here after nearly four months of detention, officials said.

Malik was arrested on July 8 from his Maisuma residence, hours after Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani, along with two of his associates, were killed in an encounter with security forces in Kokernag area of Anantnag district, triggering widespread protests.

The JKLF chairman was released from the central jail, Srinagar, this evening and has reached his residence, the officials said.

Soon after his arrest, Malik was initially held at Kothibagh police station and later shifted to the central jail.

Malik, along with chairmen of both factions of Hurriyat Conference -- Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Syed Ali Shah Geelani, is spearheading the ongoing 113-day agitation in the Valley which has claimed the lives of 85 persons and rendered thousands others injured.

The Mirwaiz was released on Monday from sub-jail, Cheshmashahi, after two months of detention but continues to be under house arrest.
