Srinagar: Eleven days after being fired upon, Akash Kumar son of Rasmesh Kumar Mehra — owner of popular eatery (Krishna Dhaba) — succumbed to the wounds at a hospital in Srinagar, officials said on Sunday.
They said Akash, 25, a resident of Janipur Jammu, at present Dalgate Srinagar, died at SMHS hospital at around 3:20 am.
Mehra had received bullet wound in right side of lower armpit and abdomen. He was on ventilator, officials said.
On February 19, Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Kashmir Vijay Kumar while addressing a press conference in Srinagar said that three bike-borne newly recruited militants were arrested for carrying out the attack.
He said that the bike and pistol used in the attack by the trio have been seized.
“All the three arrested were newly recruited militants and “confessed” to have carried out the attack,” IGP had said. (GNS)
