Yasin Malik's Pakistani wife gives birth to baby girl

Kashmiri separatist leader Yasin Malik's Pakistani wife Mushaal Hussein Mullick has given birth to a girl in a hospital here.

The baby was delivered last evening by Caesarean section.

Malik told PTI today that his wife and daughter were healthy.

Malik, 44, had married Mushaal, a 30-year-old painter, in early 2009.

The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front leader had arrived in Islamabad a few days ago to depose before a judicial commission that is investigating a mysterious memo which had sought US help to stave off a possible coup after the killing of Osama bin Laden last year.

He appeared before the commission to refute American businessman Mansoor Ijaz's claims that he had arranged a meeting between the JKLF leader and an official of an Indian spy agency in 2000.
