Baby girl, injured in Baramulla terror attack, to be shifted to AIIMS
A baby girl was among four members of a family injured when terrorists attacked a house in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district late Friday, police said.
“Terrorists fired and injured four persons including a baby girl ( Usma jan) at #Dangerpora #Sopore. All injured shifted to the hospital and stated to be stable. Police on spot and investigation in progress,” Kashmir police tweeted.
National Security Advisor Ajit Doval has asked authorities to bring the two-and-a-half-year-old girl her to All India Institute of Medical Sciences(AIIMS), New Delhi, according to ANI.
Kashmir Valley has been under a security lockdown since August 5, when the government announced the scrapping of Article 370 and divided that state into two union territories – Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
Though no major militant violence has been reported since, sporadic incidents have been taking place in some areas. On August 28, two members of a nomadic community were killed by terrorists in the higher reaches of Tral in south Kashmir after they were abducted from their temporary shelter earlier. Abdul Qadir Kohli from Jammu region’s Rajouri district, and his cousin Manzoor Ahmad Kohli were abducted on the intervening night of August 18 and 19 from Pulwama district’s Tral area by terrorists believed to be from the Jaish-e-Mohammed, police said.
While the bullet-riddled body of Abdul Qadir was found at Litchinag in the higher reaches of Tral on Monday, the body of Manzoor Kohli, who had set up his shelter at Sangri Khanmoh, was recovered from Tral’s Lachi Top Behak forest area on Tuesday, the officials said.
On August 20, a Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist and a special police officer were killed, while a police sub-inspector was injured in a gunfight in Baramulla district of north Kashmir - the first encounter between security forces and ultras after August 5.
