47

At least four people were killed and another three received injuries when an Army vehicle rammed into a passenger vehicle traveling from Sopore to Srinagar on Wednesday morning.

A local resident Iqbal Ahmed told The Kashmir Walla that four people died on the spot when an Army vehicle rammed into the vehicle near Noora Hospital, HMT Srinagar. Injured persons were taken to the SK Institute of Medical Sciences in Bemina, where one’s life has been said critical.

However the identity of the killed persons isn’t confirmed yet. Another resident Sakib Bashir said, “Soon after the incident happened local residents took to streets and started pelting stones on Indian forces and burnt the army vehicle.

“Tension has prevailed in the area after Army troopers opened fire at civilians, injuring a few protesters.” People have blocked the Srinagar-Muzafarabad National highway near the accident spot.


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
