Srinagar, Nov 26: APHC denounced the authorities’ decision of yet again placing the chairman of the amalgam Mirwaiz Umar Farooq under house detention stating that the move reflects frustration on part of the authorities.

APHC strongly condemned the forces’ action on Friday in which a teenage student Zahid Manzoor Mir of Nowshehra Zonimar was pumped with a full volley of pellets resulting in a serious damage to his vital organs like kidneys and gall bladder.

Meanwhile, on the directions of Mirwaiz a delegation comprising Sofi Mushtaq Ahmad , Muhammad Shafi Khan, Peer Ghulam Nabi and Farooq Ahmed Saudagar went to SMHS hospital to inquire about the condition of injured Zahid.The delegation said they were told Zahid a class 11 student was on way back to his home after attending his examination and he was fired with full burst of pellets that damaged his vital organs forcing doctors to remove his kidney.
The spokesman said condition of Zahid continues to be critical.
