SRINAGAR: A labourer from West Bengal who was injured in Tuesday’s attack by suspected militants that left five others dead, has been “positively responding” to treatment at SHMS Hospital here, hospital sources said.

“He had multiple injuries in his abdomen. His intestines which were displaced have been fixed. Fixators have been inserted in his injured right arm and left leg. All his vital organs are responding to treatment,” a doctor at the hospital said.
Five labourers hailing from Murshidabad, West Bengal were killed when unidentified gunmen attacked them at their rented accommodation at Katrasoo village of Kulgam district Tuesday night.
Zahoor survived with injuries in the attack and was rushed to SMHS hospital by government forces at 11pm.
He was operated upon for many hours and then kept inside ICU, a doctor said.
“He is conscious, but has been advised not to talk,” the doctor added.
So far, no one from his family has reached the hospital, the doctor added.
Medical Superintendent, SMHS Hospital, Dr Nazir Choudary, when contacted, said the injured labourer was “stable”.
Tuesday’s attack was sixth on non-local workers and truck drivers in Kashmir since abrogation of Article 370 on August 5. All attacks took place in south Kashmir this month, and have claimed 11 lives, which include six labourers, four truck drivers and one fruit trader.
