While terming the Army’s decision to award the officer, who had tied a civilian to a jeep in Budgam last month as a human shield, as highly condemnable and provocative, senior CPI (M) leader and
MLA Kulgam MY Tarigami, on Wednesday, said it was unbecoming of the Army’s traditions.
“What message you want to convey to Kashmiris by awarding an erring officer? Is an erring officer so important that sentiments of Kashmiris have been ignore.”
The CPI(M) leader demanded that court of inquiry ordered by the Army in the incident must fix the responsibilities and award punishment to those involved in the gross human rights violation.
