A student of a private school was injured on Wednesday when his school bus was attacked by stone-pelters in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir.

A group of miscreants pelted stones on the bus of Rainbow High School at Zavoora in Shopian. The police said the bus was attacked with stones near Kanipora village.

The police said the student received injuries in his head and was referred to Sri Maharaja Hari Singh (SMHS) hospital in Srinagar.

Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah condemned the attack on the school bus.

"How does pelting stones on school children or tourist buses help advance the agenda of these stone pelters? These attacks deserve our unequivocal condemnation & this tweet is mine," Omar wrote on his Twitter handle. PTI/ANI
