Yasin Malik and his family, including an 18-month-old daughter, went to Delhi on Sunday and booked two rooms in a hotel near Nizamuddin, the JKLF said in a statement in Srinagar.

However, they were asked to leave around midnight by the hotel management, it alleged.

The party leader and his family had to wait on the roadside for several hours before they took shelter in a friend's house, the statement said.

"If Delhi gets upset due to our presence there, it should formally introduce a law that could prevent the people of Kashmir from visiting the national capital," it said.

"Only due to the person's political ideology, he was thrown out of the hotel along with his family. Such action cannot be legitimised at any level," the statement said.
