Army Major Behind Kashmir Human Shield Given Award

Army Major Behind Kashmir Human Shield Given Award

What sort of State is it where an Army officer loots and torturers anyone at will.

Gogoi said he ordered his men to somehow take out the vehicle from the mud, which they managed to do. "I am still under trauma and now the entire case is being turned against me, whereas I am the victim", he said.

General Rawat further said that Major Gogoi has been given the commendation card with an aim to motivate the rank and file of Indian Army operating in a hard environment in the Kashmir Valley.

"You can not have the army fighting the stone pellets with one hand tied behind their backs", said Mr Singh, who has served in the 1965 war with Pakistan and is fondly called the "Captain" by his supporters. On seeing us, that we were moving towards him, he started running towards the crowd.

During the hearing, the official position was reasserted: the man was tied to prevent stone-pelters from targeting soldiers during the record low turn-out Srinagar Lok Sabha by-poll last month.

"This thing I have done only to save the local people". "If he (officer) has been rewarded for this bravado, I do not feel this is proper", Bhat told reporters here.

Gogoi said he made repeated requests to the crowd, including women and children, to stop stone pelting but they didnt stop.

Dar claimed he was moved around 10-12 villages at the head of the convoy, which included vehicles with security personnel and polling staff, before being let off.

'Rewarding an officer who is under investigation for a human rights violation suggests that the army seems to be willing to not just overlook, but actually valorise an act of cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment amounting to torture, ' Aakar Patel, executive director of Amnesty International India, said in a statement. "My life will never be the same again", he said, reports the Hindustan Times (HT). "As long as he (Pakistan) continues, we will continue to hit them", General Rawat said. Gogoi said, "Over 1,200 people had surrounded the polling station and were trying to burn it down with petrol bombs". He said, "It is a complete eyewash". "They were never serious". Dar said, as cited by the Hindustan Times.

The 27-year-old embroidary worker also reacted to the honour recieved by Gogoi.

The poser came after the embroidery artisan heard that an army Major, on whose direction he was tied to a jeep as a "human shield" against stone pelters in Kashmir, had been awarded a commendation certificate. "I have already undergone trauma due to the acts of the army officer and the media houses are aggravating my agony, that too without any evidence", the complaint further read.
