Viral video of youth tied to army jeep sparks outrage

The video was apparently shot at Gundipora in Beerwah area of Budgam district during Sunday's bypoll when miscreants disrupted voting in Srinagar Lok Sabha constituency by pelting stones.

Defence spokesman Colonel Rajesh Kalia said the veracity of the videos is being ascertained. There are many stone-pelters who are probably. Ghulam Qadir said he was let off by the security personnel after he showed his government service card, but, the officers had beaten up Farooq Dar and later tied him to the Army vehicle.

The video is being widely shared on social networks in Kashmir and is drawing condemnation.

'I request the Government of India and the President to dismiss the present state government and impose Governor's rule in J& K. Even the by-poll for Anantnag seat should be held under the Governor's rule, ' Abdullah said.

Meanwhile, the Kashmir High Court Bar Association in a statement termed the actions of government forces on Saturday in Pulwama Degree college as inhuman and beastly and strongly condemned the killing of a youth at Batamaloo in Srinagar. A Hindi-speaker heard in the background says, "Stone throwers will meet a similar fate".

He also expressed his outrage over the biased coverage of news channels and wrote,"I understand the outrage the CRPF video generated".

Asked about the video, which surfaced on social media April 14, Rajnath Singh said from Kolkata: "Whatever and wherever any such thing happens, it will be looked into".

The man was a protester who was used as a shield against his stone-throwing comrades on the day of the violence-hit Srinagar by-election, the army claims. A 17-year-old was allegedly killed by paramilitary officers during the 9 April by-election, one of the videos reportedly showed.

According to Live Mint, there's been an alarming increase in Kashmiri youths joining militant groups, especially after the death of Burhan Wani, a commander of the Kashmir-based militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen killed in July 2016.

"This is just so shocking!" the state's former chief minister and opposition leader Omar Abdullah posted on Twitter.
