The man was referred to Srinagar as the woman was discharged from the local hospital.
The injured couple was identified as Abdul Qayoom Bhat and his wife Nazira. Their son Noor Mohammad was arrested as the cops failed to trace his brother Mujahid Shabir Ahmad Fallahi.
Mujahid Shabir Ahmad Fallahi is a popular Jama’at-e-Islami leader.

As the aged couple resisted the arrest of Noor Mohammad, police said a pellet gun “got fired in scuffle and hit the wall”. The officer, speaking anonymously said that some pellets did hit the couple.

Later the couple was driven to the hospital where the lady was given first aid and sent home. Her husband, however, was shifted to SHMS.
The civilian account of the story is not known.
