Srinagar, Dec 10 (IANS) A delegation headed by former Union Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha arrived here on Saturday to continue its efforts to “empathise with the people of Kashmir”.

The delegation members went to the residence of senior Shia separatist leader, Aga Hassan Badgami in Badgam district immediately after landing here. They are likely to meet senior separatist leaders including Syed Al i Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in the evening.

This is the second visit of Sinha-led delegation to Kashmir since late October.

Earlier, the delegation came here on October 28 and met the separatist leaders, but made it clear then only that their purpose is to empathise with the people of Kashmir and that they carried no official brief to discuss the prevailing situation here.
