Kashmir Divisional Commissioner Masood Samoon delivered a letter from PMO to Malik, who had been admitted to the Soura Medical Institute after his condition deteriorated on Thursday last.

Malik broke his fast with a glass of juice given to him by the mother of 22-year-old youth Asif, who died last week after being hit by a teargas shell in the Maisuma locality.

Sentiments of people must not be hurt: Patil

The PMO has assured Malik that vehicles bound for Kashmir will be protected and security would be ensured for the Muslim community in Jammu region.
