An unprecedented rush was witnessed at SMHS hospital in Srinagar today as one injured after another from south Kashmir’s Shopian and Kulgam districts were admitted here. Thirteen militants and four civilians were killed in three separate encounters in south Kashmir.
Three army personnel were also killed in a gunfight.
Around 34 civilians were hit with pellets. Two were hit with pellets in their both eyes.
In 2016, government forces blinded hundreds of civilians by firing pellets indiscriminately during the protests.
