Army jawan injured in stone-pelting dies

Srinagar: An Army jawan died at a hospital here on Friday after he sustained head injuries during stone-pelting by a group of youths, an official said.

"Sepoy Rajendra Singh was part of a quick reaction team which was providing security to a Border Roads Organisation (BRO) convoy on Thursday. At around 1800 hrs, when the convoy was passing through the Anantnag bypass tri-junction near NH-44, few youths hurled stones at the vehicle and Singh was injured after being hit by a stone directly on the head," the Army official said.
