A Jammu and Kashmir Police constable who was critically injured on Tuesday in a “brief shootout” with militants near the Zoonimar area of central Kashmir’s Srinagar district continues to battle for life at SKIMS Soura, officials clarified.

A top police officer said that the constable Aamir Hussian, who has bullets injuries in the upper parts of the body including the neck, remains to be critical.

“There were earlier reports which suggested his passing away but it has been clarified that information was due to confusion,” the officer said, adding, “As per doctors his condition is very very critical”.

A senior doctor at SKIMS also said that the policeman was “revived” after being accessed to be dead.

“Sometimes this kind of confusion happens but his condition is very very critical,” he said.

The officer said that the militant was also injured and probably escaped from the spot.
