A 25-year-old soldier Ashiq Hussain was shot dead by suspected militants at Pingleena village in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Wednesday afternoon. The report said that the soldier, Ashiq Hussain of Jammu Kashmir Light Infantry Regiment, was shot by masked gunmen. The horrific incident took place outside his house at Naik Mohalla in Pingleena village.
Ashiq Hussain had joined the Army’s Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry (JAKLI) but left midway in September last year after he could not cope with the training, the officials said. A police officer confirmed that the incident took place. He said that Ashiq Hussain was rushed to the hospital immediately. However, he was declared brought dead on arrival. Pulwama has been in the news after the horrific terror attack on CRPF convoy on February 14.
