Human shield: SHRC directs govt to pay Rs 10 lac as compensation to victim

State Human Rights Commission (SHRC), Jammu and Kashmir on Monday directed the state government to provide Rs10 lakh as “compensation” to the civilian used as a human shield by the army earlier this year, reports said.

The direction was passed by the Chairman SHRC Justice Bilal Nazki.

The SHRC, however, refused to direct the army in the case saying that it doesn’t have jurisdiction over the army.

Dar was tied to the bonnet of an army jeep and paraded through several villages on April 9 in Budgam during the by-polls of the parliamentary seat of Srinagar.
