Countering fake news aired by a Pakistan-based news channel about death of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chief Yasin Malik in Tihar Jail, the Director-General of Prison (Tihar) on Sunday denied any such incident.

Sandeep Goel, Director-General (Tihar), said the rumour going around about the health of Mr. Malik, presently lodged in the Tihar prison, was totally incorrect. He added that Malik had gone through regular medical check-up and his reports were fine.

After the rumours of his death on social media, Mr. Goel found out about Malik’s health from the jail superintendent and every thing was fine.

On April 10, Mr. Malik was arrested in connection with a case related to the funding of terror and separatist groups in Jammu and Kashmir.
