Army inquiry on ‘human shield’ yet to conclude: Army


The Army is yet to conclude an inquiry into an incident in which a major tied a Kashmiri man to a jeep’s bonnet purportedly as a shield against civilian protesters in Valley.

The Court of Inquiry (CoI) into the controversial “human shield” incident in Kashmir is still carrying on, reports quoting army sources said.

They 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.
