Jammu and Kashmir's leading separatist leader Yasin Malik left New Delhi on Monday for Lahore to provide relief to the people in Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir worst hit by the October 8 earthquake. Malik, who is the first separatist leader to visit the PoK, left by a Pakistan International Airlines flight Monday evening to Lahore from where he would be going to Muzaffarabad.
