An 11-year-old girl was bitten by a venomous snake in Srinagar but she was immediately admitted at the Army Hospital in the city.
The girl identified as Yasmeena was in a critical state when brought to the hospital. She was given proper care and treatment by the doctors which saved her life.
As per reports, Yasmeena is now out of danger and will be discharged in the next 72 hours.
BC Nambiar, Executive Officer Army Hospital, said, “She came here in critical condition, however, with the proper treatment we saved her life. She’ll be discharged in the next 72 hours.”
The improvement comes even as the Army is confronting genuine claims of human rights infringement in the past state. On Friday, Kashmiri dissident Shehla Rashid was reserved for subversion by the Delhi Police. She blamed the Army for human rights infringement in the Valley.
Since the Centre revoked the special status of Jammu and Kashmir by scrapping Article 370 of the Constitution on August 5, the security forces, including the Army, are accused by the Western media as well as human rights activists for committing ‘atrocities’ on the people in the Valley.
The forces have been accused of killing protesters with pellet guns, picking up children in midnight raids and various other excesses. The allegations have been denied by the government as well as the Army.
