A 22-year-old son of a Dhaba owner was injured on Thursday, after suspected terrorists shot at him in the Dalgate area of Srinagar, merely a few kilometers away from Hotel Lalit where over 20 foreign envoys were staying overnight for a two-day trip to Jammu and Kashmir.

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.

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.
