One more youth succumbs in Srinagar Hospital

Srinagar, September 16, 2016 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, another youth succumbed to his injuries at SMHS hospital in Srinagar, today, taking the death toll in the ongoing Kashmir Intifada to 103.

The youth identified as 21-year-old Basit Mukhtar was injured after Indian police fired pellets on protesters in Pulwama on September 5. He breathed his last at Srinagar’s SMHS hospital today.

Besides the killing of 103 persons, over 12,000 people have been injured so far due to the firing of pellets, bullets and teargas shells by Indian police and troops on protesters in the ongoing Intifada.
