He was on vacation in Bijbehara, his native place, after completing B.Com (H) from Zakir Husain College. He had taken admission in M.Com first semester and classes were to commence later this month.


He was injured on Monday afternoon when security forces opened fire on protesters at Zirpara in Bijbehara, the hometown of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti. Lattoo and two other youths were critically injured in the firing. His friend, however, said he was not part of the protest.

According to the eyewitnesses, the student Aamir Nazir Latto, was shot at by the paramilitary CRPF when he was sitting on the Jhelum river bund. In the hospital, Latto was administered 17 points of blood given by ordinary Kashmiris, who are rushing to hospitals to donate blood after health authorities announced blood shortage.
