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.

Archaeologists searching Portugal’s coast have found a 400-year-old shipwreck believed to have sunk near Lisbon after returning from India laden with spices, specialists said on Monday.

“From a heritage perspective, this is the discovery of the decade,” project director Jorge Freire said. “In Portugal, this is the most important find of all time.”

In and around the shipwreck, 40 feet (12 meters) below the surface, divers found spices, nine bronze cannons engraved with the Portuguese coat of arms, Chinese ceramics and cowry shells, a type of currency used to trade slaves during the colonial era.

Found on Sept. 3 off the coast of Cascais, a resort town on the outskirts of Lisbon, the shipwreck and its objects were “very well-preserved,” said Freire.

Freire and his team believe the ship was wrecked between 1575 and 1625, when Portugal’s spice trade with India was at its peak.

In 1994, Portuguese ship Our Lady of the Martyrs was discovered near Fort of Sao Juliao da Barra, a military defense complex near Cascais.

“For a long time, specialists have considered the mouth of the Tagus river a hotspot for shipwrecks,” said Minister of Culture Luis Mendes. “This discovery came to prove it.”
