A statement issued by the CRPF said: "A high level inquiry has been ordered into the death of a patient on April 10 whose ambulance was stopped due to restrictions on civilian traffic."
"We are deeply anguished at the sad demise of Abdul Qayoom Banday of Doda. We express our sincere condolences and sympathise with the Banday family for their loss," it said.
Reports said the patient was suffering from some terminal illness and his ambulance was asked to halt near the Lower Munda area in the Valley on April 10 while he was on way to Doda from Srinagar after being discharged from the hospital.
To secure the movement of security forces' convoys, restrictions have been imposed on civilian traffic on Sundays and Wednesdays on the National Highway.
The decision was taken after the terror strike in Pulwama on a CRPF convoy on February 14 in which 40 troopers were killed.
