Srinagar: It was the driver’s immense courage and presence of mind that saved the 50 children in the school bus that was targeted by stone pelters in south Kashmir's Shopian, on Wednesday.

The children were scared and they started crying recalled the driver of the bus, whose name has not been revealed due to security reasons. "I sped as soon as I realised stones were being pelted at the bus. I tried my best to save the students," the driver of the school bus told news agency ANI.

 

The bus carrying children of the Rainbow International School faced a hail of stones while passing through Kanipora area in Shopian.

Among the two boys injured, one was sent home on Wednesday after treatment but the other boy, a Class 2 student who was seriously injured is still in a multi-specialty hospital in Srinagar.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti tweeted, "Shocked and angered to hear of the attack on a school bus in Shopian. The perpetrators of this senseless and cowardly act will be brought to justice.
