The Jammu and Kashmir police has filed an FIR against Indian Army in connection with a man tying up with a vehicle of Army as human shield during a rescue operation of security personnel and government officials who were trapped during election duty by stone-pelters on April 9.
According to Times of India, the police informed that it has registered a case under sections 342/149/506 and 367 of Ranbir penal code and a sub-divisional officer will conduct the probe.
Several political leaders raised the issue while dubbing it a serious concern and demanded a thorough investigation.
The Army had already said that it would investigate the video that led a controversy.
“In reference to the video showing a young man tied to an army jeep, the contents of the video are being verified and investigated,” a defence spokesman had said in Srinagar.
The video had led to an outrage with former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, terming it as “shocking”.
