Awarding Gogoi: Resistance leaders call for protests

Reports quoting Hurriyat spokesperson said that joint resistance leaders have called for protests across Kashmir against awarding of army officer who tied a man to his jeep.

Major Leetul Gogoi of 53 RR had tied Farooq Ahmad Dar to a Jeep and paraded him for hours together in different villages of central Kashmir’s Baudgam district on by-poll day.
