Amid stone pelting, 2 CRPF men run over by paramilitary force vehicle

Two CRPF jawans were mowed down by a paramilitary force vehicle when its driver lost control due to stone-throwing in the Hiller area of Kokernag in south Kashmir, the police said.
The incident took place on Wednesday evening when CRPF troops were withdrawing after day-long duty in the area. According to the police, the driver of the CRPF’s armoured vehicle was pelted with stones in the area during the withdrawal operation in the evening. The driver, identified as Roop Singh, lost control and hit a motorcycle which two CRPF jawans — Riyaz Ahmed Wani and Nissar Ahmed Wani — were riding. They were rushed to a hospital where they were declared brought dead. The driver of the armoured vehicle has been hit in his head and has been rushed to an Army hospital in Srinagar.
