Stone-pelter run over by CRPF gypsy dies of injuries, clashes break out in Srinagar

SRINAGAR: A 21-year-old youth who had climbed on the bonnet of a CRPF gypsy and was subsequently run over by the vehicle while it was being attacked by stone-pelters in Srinagar on Friday died of injuries in a hospital on Saturday. Clashes erupted at several places in old Srinagar soon after the burial of the youth, identified as

Kaisar Ahmad, as protesters threw stones at security forces.

Kaisar was among the stone-pelters who had attacked the CRPF gypsy near

Jamia Masjid in downtown Srinagar soon after Friday prayers. Along with another youth, he was run over by the vehicle as the driver tried to move away from the attackers. Doctors attending on Kaisar said he was brought to SKIMS hospital in a critical condition with multiple injuries and was put on a ventilator. He died on Saturday morning while the other youth is stable.

Kaisar belonged to a poor family and had been living with his uncle as both his parents are dead.

Former chief minister Omar Abdullah took on CM

Mehbooba Mufti soon after Friday’s incident and tweeted: “Earlier they tied people to the fronts of jeeps & paraded them around villages to deter protestors now they just drive their jeeps right over protestors. Is this your new SOP @MehboobaMufti sahiba? Ceasefire means no guns so use jeeps?”

Meanwhile, the valley was shut down partially following a call given by Hurriyat leaders Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and

Yasin Malik against what they called use of force inside the Jamia Masjid on May 25, 2018. While shops, business establishments and schools remained closed, private transport was plying as usual, reports said.

The Ancient Times

Because we’re journalists, we’re impatient. We want to gather the news as quickly as possible, using any technological resource available. And when we’re as sure of the story as we can be, we want to share it immediately, in whatever way reaches the most people. The Internet didn’t plant these ideas in our heads. We’ve always been this way.
