A downtown youth who was mowed down by a CRPF vehicle at Nowhatta after Friday prayers succumbed to his injuries at SKIMS Soura here late in the night. Local reports identified the youth as Qaiser Bhat, 21, of Fateh-a- Kadal.
The slain youth is survived by two teenage sisters and had recently started Kashmir art business. He along with his sisters was living with his aunt in Dalgate for the past four years as both his parents had died.
According to several eyewitnesses, the CRPF youth in order to wriggle out of the mob sped on, knocking down two boys Younis Ahmed s/o Nisar Ahmed, and Aaiser Bhat. They were rushed to SKIMS. “Kaiser had suffered internal injuries,” local reports said.
