Shopian army firing: Third civilian dies of bullet injury

Govt to take FIR against Army to logical conclusion Mehbooba

A youth who was injured in army firing in south Kashmir's Shopian district on Saturday succumbed to his injuries at SKIMS Soura making him the third casualty of the incident.

Meanwhile, the army on Wednesday filed a counter FIR over the attack on its personnel by the mob.

The incident rocked Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly and Council, where opposition clashed with Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) members, who were justifying the firing on demonstrators.

Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, on whose behest the police complaint was filed, said it had become necessary to take such action as erroneous elements within the Indian Army were behaving recklessly.

The J&K police has registered an FIR No 26/2018 PRC under sections 302 (murder), 307 (attempt to murder) and 336 (endangering life) against Army's 10 Garhwal Regiment for killing the two youth. Also, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti criticised Army for the civilians killing. A Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) accompanying the convoy was hit on his head and fell unconscious suffering serious injury.
