The family members and relatives of a 9-year old boy, who was injured on December 16, in Sopore town, staged a protest outside police station Sopore in north Kashmir on Thursday evening demanding immediate arrest of the accused 'involved' in inflicting injury to the victim. 

Mursaleen Azad, 9, was seriously injured after a stone hit him in the head on December 16 this year in Sopore town. He was immediately shifted to sub district hospital Sopore, where from he was referred to SKIMS hospital Srinagar for specialized treatment. 

However, family of the injured boy said that despite going through two major operations, the condition of the boy is still critical. 

"Doctors at SKIMS have so far conducted two operations and still the condition of the boy is critical. We want justice and action against those who inflicted injury to our innocent child" said Azad Ahmad, father of the injured youth. 

He said, "My son was not part of the protest and was just passing through the area on the fateful day when someone hit him with a stone inflicting grievous injury." 

"My only hope is my son. I am father of three daughters and critical condition of my son has frustrated each and every member of our family. We want nothing more than justice" said Azad. 

Police have claimed earlier that the boy was injured after he was hit with a stone during clashes in the area.
