Kashmir human shield row: Army inquiry on, clean chit hasn’t been issued to major
The Army is still to conclude an inquiry into an incident in which a major tied a Kashmiri man to a jeep’s bonnet purportedly as a shied against stone pelters in the Valley.
The Court of Inquiry (CoI) into the controversial “human shield” incident in Kashmir is still carrying on, army sources said.
The sources denied reports that the CoI had given a clean chit to the major and said a final conclusion was still to be reached. A video, showing the man tied to an army vehicle during polling in the Srinagar Lok Sabha by-election on April 9, had triggered a public outcry, prompting the Army to institute a probe.
