Jammu and Kashmir: Stone pelters in South Kashmir kill 42 year old local truck driver

42-year-old Noor Mohammed Dar was returning home when stonepelters hurled stones towards it.

In a horrific incident on Sunday, protesters in Kashmir killed a civilian truck driver after stone-pelters attacked him in Bijbehara of south Kashmir’s Anantnag district, reports ANI.

According to the reports, 42-year-old Noor Mohammed Dar, a resident of the same Zradipora Uranhall locality, was returning home in his truck when stone-pelters hurled stones at it, a police officer said.

Reportedly, the stone pierced the glass and injured the driver in the head. He was soon rushed to the nearby Bhijbhera hospital, from where he was referred to SKIMS Soura, the police officer said. However, Dar had already succumbed to his injuries before reaching the hospital, the official said.

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.
