Day 56: School boy’s body fished out from Jhelum

Srinagar: A thirteen year-old boy who drowned after being ‘chased’ by police and paramilitary CRPF yesterday was retrieved from Jhelum river on Friday.

Official sources told Kashmir Glory that the body of Danish Ahmad Haroo, 13, son of Muhammad Sultan of New Colony Palpora, was fished out from the river near Krishbal.

Haroo – a student of Oxford Public School— jumped into Jhelum when government forces allegedly chased several boys at Parimpora Bridge.

Meanwhile, curfew was today re-imposed in many parts of Kashmir including Srinagar as a precautionary measure ahead of Friday prayer congregations even as normal life remained paralysed in the Valley for the 56th day.
