“8-year-old killed in Kashmir school blast,” from the Times of India, with thanks to Twostellas:
SRINAGAR: An eight-year-old was killed and six other students of Nadihal high school were injured in a grenade blast in the school compound in Bandipore, Baramulla district of north Kashmir on Friday.
The victim, identified as Moshin Sarwar, was killed on the spot while the injured were rushed to hospital. The police said unknown militants, in a bid to attack an army camp, threw a hand grenade that fell inside the school compound.
However, a defence spokesman countered the police version saying the explosive device was in the school bag of the deceased child. Following the blast, residents of the township took to the streets to express their resentment.
