Journalist injured in stone pelting in Kashmir

Srinagar: A Kashmiri journalist was injured when a group of protesters hurled stones on the cars of media persons travelling back to Srinagar from Uri on Tuesday afternoon.

Anees Zargar, a Kashmir-based journalist who works with Zee media, got a fracture in his arm.

“Some boys threw stones on the car in which I was travelling with few other journalists who had come from New Delhi to cover the Uri attack. I got injured when a stone hit my arm, while I saved my head,” Anees told IANS.

The incident took place in the HMT area of Srinagar on the Srinagar-Baramulla national highway.

“All other reporters were safe. There was an OB van along with us,” he said.

Kashmir has been on boil since July 8 killing of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani. Over 80 people have been killed and thousands left injured in clashes with the security forces and protesters.
