A 50-year-old woman, who was critically injured on Thursday after she was shot at by her husband in Bandipora, succumbed to her injuries at Srinagar hospital on Saturday evening.

An unnamed senior police official told a local news agency, Kashmir News Observer (KNO), that a retired Army captain, Ghulam Hassan Khan shot his wife, Fatima Begum, 50, with a 12-bore gun after an argument ensued between the couple in Shokbaba village of Bandipora.

Following the incident, Ms. Begum suffered critical head injuries and was shifted to the district hospital Bandipora. After initial treatment, she was later referred to the SMHS Hospital in Srinagar for specialized treatment as her condition was critical, the officer said.
