The Hush Post: A dreaded terrorist escaped from police custody this morning when he was brought for a medical check-up at Shri Maharaja Hari Singh Hospital, Srinagar. The prisoner Naved, snatched a weapon from one of the cops and opened indiscriminate fire. As a result of it, one policeman immediately died while another one was seriously injured. He is being treated in the emergency ward in the same hospital and his condition is critical.
Sources say that Naved was helped by some people who already knew that there is going to be an attempt to escape and they were strategically positioned to help him flee. He was brought to the hospital along with five prisoners. Meanwhile, after the incident, the police has cordoned-off the hospital. Naveed was arrested four years ago for killing a cop in Pulwama, about 40 km from Srinagar.
