Decision on Malik's passport at appropriate time: Shinde
New Delhi, March 11 : Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde Monday said the government had taken note of JKLF chief Yasin Malik sharing the stage with Lashkar-e-Taiba founder Hafiz Saeed during his Pakistan visit and action concerning his passport will be taken at the appropriate time.
Talking to reporters here, Shinde said the central government had left it to the Jammu and Kashmir government to take suitable steps upon Malik's return from Pakistan and he had been placed under house arrest.
