SRINAGAR, Jammu and Kashmir

An elderly man injured in a house collapse at Srinagar gunfight site in India-administered Kashmir earlier this week succumbed to his injuries on Sunday, a medical official said.

Dr. Nazir Choudhary, medical superintendent of Shri Maharaja Hari Singh Hospital, identified the deceased as Manzoor Ahmad Khan, 65, of Masheli Mohalla, Hawal, Srinagar.

“He succumbed to his injuries this morning,” Choudhary said.

Three days ago, a 12-year-old boy from Srinagar also died after sustaining injuries at the same site.

Meanwhile, clashes have been reported in Rainawari, Eidgah and Hawal areas of Srinagar today after the news of the death of the elderly man spread.

On May 19, in a 12-hour fierce gunfight between militants and government forces, two militants, including Junaid Sehrai, divisional commander of the rebel group Hizbul Mujhahideen, were killed.

In the gun battle, around 15 residential houses got damaged at Nawakadal area of the city.
