FIR against Army for using stone pelter as human shield

FIR against Army for using stone pelter as human shield

The videos and comments were being carried on Twitter and Facebook.

Rights group Amnesty International on Monday condemned the "targeting of civilians in Kashmir by armed groups", after undated videos showed two men forced to shout anti-India slogans. "Who has posted the video?" he asked. The video shows the army jeep moving ahead of an army patrol, while some villagers could be overheard that the youth had been picked by the army.

Eight people died and almost 100 were injured in unprecedented violence during the Srinagar by-polls during which security forces opened fire at different places to quell stone-pelting mobs.

BJP, meanwhile, said the incident was being probed but the challenging situation the Army has to deal with on the ground must be appreciated. "Look at the fate of the stone-pelter", a soldier is heard saying over a loudspeaker in the video while Dar is tied to the vehicle. The video had evoked widespread condemnation. "This is just so shocking!#Kashmir".

That the CRPF jawans seen in the video were carrying EVMs and other polling material is baseless. The authenticity of the video could not be verified.

"Until the video's veracity is established, it is hard to react", the former Army chief said on the sidelines of a seminar in Mumbai. We should be outraged over this as well? No?

"Whoever wants Azadi LEAVE NOW!" A small sliver of Kashmir is also held by China.

A little later, the video of Dar tied to the jeep surfaced.

Following the outrage over the video, the army ordered an inquiry.

The "human shield" argument caught on, with most news outlets reporting that the person was being used to protect the army, despite the fact that even according to Abdullah's own claims, the case does not constitute one of using human shields.

An independent journalist based in Kashmir, Sheikh Saaliq, termed the video as an act of "terrorism". They were scared. I was told not to utter a word to anyone or they would shoot me'. "This is terrorism", Saaliq tweeted.

The youth, Farooq Ahmad Dar, of Chil Bras, Khansaheb, was allegedly thrashed and detained at an army camp before he was released after the polling concluded on the Srinagar parliamentary constituency on 9 April.
