Injured soldier succumbs, Uri attack toll 18


A 20-year-old soldier injured in the Uri terror attack died of injuries in a Delhi hospital on Monday, taking the toll to 18, officials said.

The soldier, identified as KV Janardan, died at the Army Research and Referral Hospital, a hospital official told over phone. 

"He lost his battle with life at 11.30 am this morning," the official said.

Janardan was among three soldiers flown to Delhi for treatment following injuries sustained in Sunday’s fidayeen attack in an army base camp in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir.

At least 17 soldiers were martyred in Kashmir in the Sunday morning attack.
