The boy has been identified as Aakash Mehra, son of Ramesh Kumar Mehra. He was immediately rushed to SMHS Hospital where his condition was declared stable. According to local Police, the doctors were still monitoring his condition.
Terrorists are suspected to be a member of The Resistance Front (TRF). Terrorists shot at Aakash near the Krishna Dhaba, a popular food joint in the Durganag Dalgate area in Srinagar.
However, according to security officials, a lesser know banned terror outfit, 'Muslim Janbaz Force', which was active in Kashmir during the early '90s has claimed the responsibility for the attack.
Chaudhary Yasin is the leader of the organization and he is a resident of Handwara. He is the vice-chairman of the United Jihad Council with Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) chief as its chairman.
