Srinagar: Even as most parts of Kashmir Valley limped back to normalcy on Wednesday after remaining paralysed for a day over the killing of two militants and a civilian in security forces actions, a school bus was attacked by a group of stone-pelters in southern Shopian district leaving two minor students injured.
“We’re trying to ascertain the identity of the attackers. The moment we know who they are they will be arrested,” he said.
Director General of Police, Shesh Paul Vaid, said in a tweet, “Miscreants pelted stones on school bus of Rainbow School Shopian resulted in injuries to 2nd class student Rehan. He has been shifted to SKIMS for treatment with head injury.
Complete madness how stone pelters are targeting young school children. These criminals will should face action”.
The father of one of the injured boys told media, “My son has been injured in stone pelting, this is against humanity. This could have been anyone’s child.” CM Mufti also took to Twitter to condemn the incident and assure the culprits will be brought to justice.
