In yet another shocking incident, a school bus carrying at least 40 students was attacked by stone pelters in south Kashmir’s Shopian district on Wednesday.

According to reports, three students received injury out of whome one was seriously injured. A stone hit Rehan, an 8-year-old class 2 students, on his head and was immediately referred to Shri Maharaja Hari Singh Hospital, Srinagar for treatment. The school bus belonged to Rainbow High School at Zavoora in Shopian. They came under attack at around 9:25 am while passing through Narpora in Shopian.

SSP of Shopian Shailender Kumar Mishra told Hindustan Times, “The driver showed some presence of mind and increased the speed so that he could avoid getting hit. However, unfortunately, a child was seriously hurt in his head. We had his CT scan; he is currently fine.”

Rehan’s condition is stable while the two other students who received injury were sent home after preliminary medical aid. “My son has been injured in stone pelting, this is against humanity. This could have been anyone’s child,” said the father of the students who suffered a head injury, to ANI 

The police have launched a search operation to identify and nab the miscreants involved in the attack.


The Logical Indian take

The attack on a school bus in the valley by stone pelters is rare but alarming. This is not the first time that children were targeted by goons. During the Padmavat row in January, members of Karni Sena attacked a school bus in Gurgaon filled with children. It is awful that kids are being attacked in the country. When all else fails and there is nobody left to instil fear, miscreants take to harass innocent children.

The Logical Indian hopes that police investigation catches the ones who pelted stones at little kids and brings them to justice.
