NEW DELHI: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Amanullah Khan is among the first batch of 26 people who have applied for visa to India to participate in a two-day seminar. "Khan is among the first 26 people who have applied for visa to participate in the two-day conference beginning on March 17," senior ANC leader and co-ordinator of the conference Muzzafar Shah told PTI here on Thursday. He said all the leaders had applied at the Indian High Commission in Islamabad on Wednesday. Khan is a proclaimed offender of the law here and is unlikely to be granted visa. The two-day seminar "In search of peace and solution" is being organised by the Awami National Conference (ANC) at Jammu from March 17. Besides Khan, other prominent leaders who applied for visa included the president of the Jammu and Kashmir National Liberation Front (JKNLF) and son of the founding father of JKLF, Showkat Maqbool Bhat, Shah said. An application was filed on his behalf as he is presently lodged in jail by authorities in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir. Other leaders include former JKNLF president G M Mir, Anwar Khan (JKNLF) and president of Balwaristan National Front (Gilgit) Nawaz Khan Nazish, Shah said.(PTI)
