At least ten Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans suffered injuries today when they were attacked by stone pelters after their vehicle turned turtle in Sophian district of the Kashmir valley.

According to the state police, the attackers resorted to intense stone pelting at the passing CRPF vehicle on the outskirts of Shopian town.

"The injured troopers are being taken to hospital. Reinforcements were rushed to the spot," a police officer said.

The attack came on a day when the Army Chief expressed the hope that normalcy would soon return to the Kashmir valley.

Accusing Pakistan of trying to create unrest in the valley, General Rawat said that Islamabad is using social media to foment trouble in Jammu and Kashmir.

"Pakistan is spreading disinformation among the youth of Kashmir with doctored videos and messages. This is further supported by some of the people in the valley who spread it and glamorize the young boys who have joined terrorist organisations,” he said.
