In a stament to Valley Media Serviec, Hiba Nisar, a 20-month-old girl suffered grave pellet injuries during forces action at Shopian when she was in her mother’s lap.

The pellets, according to the petitioner, have ruptured the eye-ball of the girl’s right eye and she has to undergo a series of surgeries to regain her vision.
