Kashmir : Islamist mob attacks school bus ferrying children, one student critically injured

A stone pelting Islamist mob today attacked a school bus carrying children in Shopian today. According to reports, the bus carrying about 50 children from Kellar village to Shopian in Jammu and Kashmir came under heavy attack by Islamist mob pelting stones.

Three children have been reportedly injured in the incident. One of them, a student of class 2, is said to be in critical condition. The bus was moving through the Kanipora area when it came under attack.

SSP of Shopian Shailendra Mishra has reportedly stated that the windows of the bus have been badly damaged and the perpetrators have strategically selected an area where there is no force deployment. Local reports suggest that the Islamists attacked the bus over the recent killing of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen commander Sameer Tiger. Tiger was killed on Monday after a successful cordon and search joint operation by the 44 Rashtriya Rifles, CRPF and Special Operations Group of J&K police. Another local terrorist Aqib Wani was also killed in the operations. One ‘stone pelter’ pelted stones at the security forces to help the terrorists escape was critically injured too. Major Rohit Shukla of the 44 Rashtriya Rifles had reportedly been injured during the operation.

J&K CM Mehboooba Mufti has condemned the incident. It is notable here that CRPF, police and army personnel are very frequently targetted by Islamist mobs who pelt stones and hurl petrol bombs at them. The Islamists often form groups to pelt stones at the forces when they are engaged in critical combat operations. They help to divert attention and help the terrorists escape. The NIA has been taking extensive steps to identify and tackle the leaders who organise the jihadi mobs to pelt stones.
