Srinagar: After shocking videos of a man used as human shield and a teenager shot from point-blank range by government forces, more videos have emerged on social media depicting excesses committed by government forces on Kashmiris.
Two new videos making rounds on Whatsapp and Facebook show government forces ruthlessly beating youths captured by them, one of whom is bleeding profusely.
The time and place of the videos is not known. One of them has reportedly been shot in Pulwama, where a youth is being mercilessly beaten by three to five soldiers who are holding him face down on a main road. The 22-second video shows the youth begging before the soldiers to be spared and crying in pain. One soldier is seen clutching his neck, another pressing his legs with jackboots. Later, a soldier hits with his baton several times on the youth’s back and hip. A third soldier joins them and presses the youth’s hand under his foot while a fourth soldier puts his jackboot over his neck to press the youth’s face down upon the road. The video ends abruptly at this point.
In the other video, four youths are seen being bundled inside a jeep by soldiers and then a soldier is seen hitting them with a wooden stick. One among the bundled youth has injury marks on his face and he is bleeding.
