Injured youth may not survive
Srinagar, Oct 20: Anees Ahmad, 29, injured in Friday’s shootout at Hotel Silver Star here, is battling for his life at SMHS Hospital: his pancreas and kidneys ripped apart, face pale and hair dry. Inside the ward there are a few doctors murmuring with sighs,machine sounds beeping, equipment all around, papers on table and… silence.
“He has minimal chances of survival,” doctors said.
A resident of Diwar Lolab, district Kupwara, Anees was seriously injured on Friday when militants attacked an army convoy at Pantha Chowk while his colleague got killed in the incident.
“Bullets have ripped through his abdomen damaging pancreas and kidneys completely,” doctors told Greater Kashmir. “Anees is completely paralyzed. The distal part of pancreas is completely damaged. His left kidney is defunct,” they added.
Doctors said his blood pressure is 45/20 - a critical situation. “Many such cases have been handled here. Patients like Anees hardly come out alive. He is unlikely to make it,” said a doctor.
Sounds of beeping machines come out loud when the doctor opens or closes the door of the ward. Doctors plead not to initiate an argument with them. “For heaven’s sake why do you want to see him? We are telling you everything. We are not hiding anything,” they said.
Medical Superintendent SMHS Hospital, Dr Nazir Choudhary, said the other injured has been shifted to Bone and Joint Hospital. “He is there in a stable condition. But Anees is a very critical case. We are doing our best to engage every facility and expertise,” he added.
