Srinagar: A youth was critically injured in Jammu and Kashmir’s Bijbehara town on Wednesday after security forces clashed with a stone pelting mob that was protesting over the Udhampur truck attack victim’s death.

The injured youth has been identified as Naseer Ahmad Dar, 25, a resident of Zirpora Bijbehara in south Kashmir’s Anantnag town.

Reports from Bijbehara said the youth was hit on the head by a teargas shell after security forces used force to quell the stone pelting mob.

Doctors at Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) Soura in Srinagar said the youth was operated upon.

The injured youth had earlier been taken to a nearby hospital in south Kashmir and later shifted to capital Srinagar after his condition deteriorated.

Clashes and shutdown continued for the third consecutive day in parts of south Kashmir after 16-year-old Zahid Rasool Bhat succumbed to his injuries on Sunday.

He was one of the two persons injured in a petrol bomb attack on October 9 after miscreants attacked a valley-bound truck with at Udhampur on the Srinagar-Jammu national highway.
