Srinagar: In heart-wrenching photos that emerged from Kashmir on Wednesday, a three-year-old boy can be seen sitting on his grandfather’s body, who was killed in a terror attack on the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sopore.
The child and his grandfather were travelling in a car when the vehicle was hit by bullets in the town, which is in Baramulla district about 50 km from Srinagar.
A video of the visibly shaken boy showed him crying inconsolably when he was picked up by the police. The Kashmir police also tweeted a photo of the child.
“Jammu and Kashmir police rescued a three-year-old boy from getting hit by bullets during the terrorist attack in Sopore,” said the post by the Kashmir Zone Police.
A CRPF jawan was also killed in the incident. A checkpost was attacked by the terrorists at around 7:30 am in Sopore where some policemen and the CRPF troops were on duty, officials said, adding that the troops retaliated promptly.
“As the troops were de-bussing from the vehicles to occupy their respective spots of deployment, militants hiding in the attic of a nearby mosque started firing indiscriminately on the troops, resulting in injuries to the CRPF personnel. One of them succumbed to his injuries,” CRPF said in a statement.
