Gilgit, November 15: An eleven year old child, Mukhtar Ahmed son of Ghulam Ahmed, was severely injured in a hit and run incident that occurred in Khomar locality of Gilgit city. The local people immediately shifted the injured child to a nearby hospital where his condition is said to be out of danger. It was the second such incident at the same spot during the last week.
