SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Police paid tributes to the police inspector who was critically injured in the terror attack in Anantnag district on June 12 but later succumbed to his injuries on Sunday afternoon at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi.
Arshad Ahmad Khan, the SHO of Saddar Police station in Anantnag, reached the site soon after terrorists opened fire at the security personnel on KP Road in Anantnag. The moment he stepped out of his official bulletproof vehicle, along with his service rifle, a barrage of bullets were fired by the terrorists in which he was injured.
He was rushed to the 92 Base Hospital of the Army in Srinagar in critical condition. On Saturday, he was referred to the Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences in Srinagar.
Khan was flown to Delhi on Sunday afternoon in an air ambulance for specialised treatment at the AIIMS but his condition started deteriorating further and he succumbed to his injuries.
