Srinagar, April 15: A youth injured in clashes with the government forces in Kangan area of central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district nearly two weeks before succumbed at SKIMS Soura on Sunday.
Aamir Hameed Lone (21), a resident of Chhatergul Kangan, was admitted at SKIMS Soura on April 3 after being seriously injured during the clashes which erupted in the area following the killing of another youth Gowhar Ahmad Rather in police action.
Medical Superintendent SKIMS Dr Farooq Jan confirmed the death of Lone.
“He had been taken off the ventilator. He was in the ward. He was talking,” said Dr Jan, adding that he might have died due to thromboembolism, in which a clot is formed in a blood vessel that breaks loose and is carried by the blood stream to plug another vessel.
