Elusive woman separatist leader Asiya Andrabi was arrested by police in Kashmir today.

The chief of Dukhtaran-e-Millat outfit was nabbed from Basant Bagh area of the city this afternoon, a police official said.

The law enforcing agencies were on a lookout for her since the current unrest began in Kashmir on July 9, a day after Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter with security forces.

She had been issuing radical statements while being underground. As per media reports, clashes erupted in the Saloora area of Gandarbal in Central Kashmir, after police tried to arrest Asiya Andrabi during a rally.

Earlier in 2015, Andrabi was arrested for hoisting the Pakistani flag on 14 August.
