SRINAGAR: A civilian, Javed Ahmed Sofi of Sethar (Bijbehara), injured during a clash between protesters and police, is being treated at the surgical ICU of SKIMS, Soura.
Director SKIMS Dr Showkat Zargar told Kashmir Reader that Sofi was referred to the institute from SMHS Hospital on Wednesday evening.
He said Sofi has suffered skull fracture and was operated for two and a half hours.
“We cannot say anything about his condition at this time, but he is under strict observation,” Zargar said.
A police statement said Sofi was attacked by “miscreants” at Charsoo in Awantipora, but the statement could not be verified independently.
