After battling for life for a month, eminent cardiologist from Kashmir Dr Sheikh Jalal-ud-din died at AIIMS on Saturday morning. He was 64.
Jalal was the former director of the prestigious Shere-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) in Soura, and he was shot by militants near his residence at Namblabal in Pampore on July 18.
While Jalal's two police guards had died on the spot, the cardiologist was hit by a bullet in the left eye and was rushed to Soura medical institute in a critical condition, before being flown in to AIIMS here in an air ambulance.
