Assailants attack family, 5 injured
Baramulla, Aug 18: Five members of a family, including two sisters, were wounded when unidentified assailants barged into their house and attacked them with sharp edged weapons at Dangiwacha Rafiabad here in north Kashmir, last night.
The injured were identified as Ajaz Ahmad Mir, Showkat Ahmad Mir, Kulsuma, Shamima and Ghulam Muhammad Mir.
The assailants, armed with knives and believed to be two in number forced their entry into the house of Ghulam Muhammad Mir, son of late Ghulam Nabi Mir, at Markipora Dangiwacha around 1 am. “After entering through the window, they attacked my son Ajaz Ahmad, at the back of his neck, leaving him in the pool of blood. The assailants also inflicted serious injuries to my two daughters and another son. The finger of one of my daughter was cut in the incident,” Ghulam Muhammad Mir told Greater Kashmir.
By the time family could raise an alarm assailants managed to escape under the cover of darkness. Soon after the incident, people came running out of their houses and rushed injured family to a local hospital from where Ajaz was referred to Srinagar in a critical condition.
Meanwhile, Dangiwacha observed a complete shutdown against the gruesome incident.
Police have lodged an FIR, No. 39/2011 under section 307, 452 RPC and started investigations. “We are working on different angles, business rivalry too cannot be ruled out however the statement of injured Ajaz Ahmad, who was attacked first by the assailants will be important in the case” said SHO Dangiwacha, Rouf Ahmad.
