Kulgam youth injured in Ganderbal succumbs
SRINAGAR, Apr 19: A Kulgam labourer, who was critically injured in security forces firing on protestors on the by-polling day in Ganderbal district on April 9, succumbed to his injuries in a hospital here this morning. With his killing, the death toll of civilians in security forces firing has risen to nine now.

The deceased was identified as Muzaffar Ahmed Mir son of Ghulam Mohiuddin, a resident of Zangalpora village of Kulgam district. He was seriously injured in security forces firing at Barsoo area of Ganderbal district. A labour, Muzaffar had a bullet injury in thigh and was admitted at the Intensive Care Unit of SKIM.

After battling for life over a week, Muzaffar died in the hospital on Wednesday morning.

Reports said police sealed the adjacent villages of Zangalpora including Brazlo, Mir Bazar and Devsar to stop people from visiting the native village of the deceased youth. “The movement of people was restricted to maintain law and order,” said a police official.

Reports said amid restrictions, people in large number participated in the last rites of the slain youth who was 25 years old.

The family members of the slain youth alleged that Muzaffar also died due to lack of proper treatment to him. “He was not provided proper health care,” said one of the family members.

Meanwhile, a spontaneous shutdown was observed in Baroosa and its adjoining areas in central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district on Wednesday after the news of death of a Kulgam youth spread in the area.
