Minor boy suffers pellet injury in eye as armed forces fire at civilian protestors in Pulwama

Pulwama: A 9-year-old child suffered pellet injury in his eye as armed forces on Thursday resorted to pellet firing and teargas shelling amid a cordon-and-search-operation (CASO) launched in Karimabad area in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

Soon after militants attacked a police party near Princhoo, leading to the killing of a police Head Constable, and critical injuries to another one, a joint team of police, army and CRPF launched a CASO in adjoining areas including Karimabad.

However, clashes ensued with scores of youth pelting stones at the forces.
