Financial Adviser injured in gunbattle

Srinagar, October 5
Financial Adviser to Power Development Department, S K Sadhotra, was among seven hurt in a gunbattle outside Dashnami Akhara at Lal Chowk here today, a police spokesman said.

Mr Sadhotra, a resident of Jammu, was hit by a stray bullet during the gunbattle, the spokesman said.

Militants made an abortive bid to storm a building, where the mace of Lord Shiva is kept, by firing at a CRPF picket in the Lal Chowk, triggering a fierce gunbattle with security forces in which two policeman were killed and seven injured.

Mr Sadhotra was preparing for office when he was hit by a bullet while leaving his government accommodation near the site of the gunbattle, the spokesman said adding he was shifted to hospital where his condition was stated to be stable. PTI
