The police soon identified the person who threw stones at the driver and arrested him. The accuses Kashmiri stone pelter has been slapped with a murder case against him at Bhijbhera police station, the official said.

The valley has been mostly calm after the abrogation of Article 370 which revoked Jammu and Kashmir’s separate status and made it an integral part of the country. The government of India even bifurcated the erstwhile state into two union territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh. The move of the government has been largely welcomed by Indians.
