Girl injured in Kashmir landmine blast


Srinagar : A girl was injured Friday when an explosive device went off while she was collecting firewood in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district, police said.

“A girl named Masrat Fatima, daughter of Nazir Hussain, resident of Pingla Hari Dal village in Kupwara district, was injured when she, while collecting firewood, came in contact with some explosive device which exploded,” said a police statement issued here.

The injured girl was shifted to the sub-district hospital in Tangdhar town where doctors referred her to the Bone and Joint Hospital here for further treatment.

“The explosive device is believed to have been a pressure mine that seems to have been carried away by the flowing water from the ‘No Man’s land’ near the line of control (LOC),” the statement said.
