Mani Shankar Aiyar Visits Srinagar Hospital To Meet Victims, Gets Thrown Out By Protesters

Congress leader and former union minister mani shankar aiyar and journalist Prem Shankar Jha were thrown out of the hospital when they went to meet the civilians injured during the ongoing protests on Thursday.

Aiyar and Jha who were a part of a delegation of individuals which included journalists and activists were asked to leave the premises while the journalists and others were allowed to visit the wards where they interacted with the injured. “We don’t shake hands with murderers,” attendants told Aiyar, according to a doctor in the hospital.

Sources said the patients met with the group of journalists and activists and narrated the situations during which they suffered the injuries. “They were not allowed to take photographs in the ophthalmology wards, where most of the pellet victims are admitted,” Ubaid Ahmad, a volunteer in the hospital said. “There was anti-India sloganeering inside the wards when they were present.”
