Officer Who Tied Protester To Jeep Honoured By Army


Kashmir:  An officer, who tied a protester on a jeep as a ‘human shield’ during the recent protests in Kashmir, has received a commendation from the Army. Major Nitin Gogoi, against whom an inquiry is on, has been awarded a Commendation Card for sustained efforts during counter-insurgency operations.

The video of the young protester tied in front of a jeep leading an army convoy during the by-elections in Srinagar last month had gone viral, sparking anger across the country.
