Three-year-old rescued during terrorist attack in Sopore

A three-year-old boy survived as his grandfather was killed in a terrorist attack on the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sopore Wednesday.

In heart-wrenching pictures, the boy can be seen sitting on the dead body of his grandfather who was killed by the terrorists.

The boy was rescued by the army and police personnel from getting hit by bullets during a terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sopore on Wednesday.

The Kashmir police also tweeted a photo of the child being carried to safety by a policeman.

“JKP rescued a three-year-old boy from getting hit by bullets during a terrorist attack in Sopore,” Kashmir Zone Police said in a tweet.

One CRPF head constable was also killed while three security personnel were injured after terrorists struck a CRPF party in Sopore earlier in the day.

“One head constable succumbed to his injuries, three more are injured and stable,” IG CRPF Rajesh Kumar said.

The injured CRPF personnel have been rushed to army’s 92 base hospital in Srinagar.

The area has been cordoned off and an operation has been launched to nab the attackers.

This is the second attack on CRPF in Sopore in the last three months. On April 18, terrorists fired at a CRPF party killing three troopers.
