The Indian Army today refuted reports that claimed that the army officer who used a civilian as a human shield in Kashmir has been cleared of any wrongdoing and called these reports "speculative".
Indian Army Court of Inquiry acquitted an officer accused of tying a man to his jeep while patrolling in the Indian Held Kashmir on Monday, said a foreign news agency.
A video of the incident was uploaded social websites, generating massive outrage and worldwide condemnation. The Jammu and Kashmir police had filed an FIR against a Major from the 53 Rashtriya Rifles.
Major Nitin Gogoi is a pass-out from the Army Cadet College and belongs to the Indian Army's 53 Rashtriya Rifles. "Not even disciplinary action was recommended against the officer", the reports said. ".contrary to the hue and cry generated by the clipping on social media, senior army officers had appreciated the presence of mind of the officer to avoid casualties or injuries", the report said, quoting a source saying: "He was congratulated for his acumen and presence of mind that saved many lives".
A video, showing the man tied to an army vehicle during polling in the Srinagar Lok Sabha by-election on April 9, had triggered a public outcry, prompting the Army to institute a probe.
Senior officers have reportedly termed it "one-off incident that was blown out of proportion".
The Army Major was leading the convoy of five vehicles during the by-polls in the Valley when this idea struck his mind to escape the stone-pelters on the way. "Image of a "stone pelter" tied in front of a jeep as a "human shield", will 4 (for) ever haunt the Indian Army & the nation", Lt Gen H S Panag wrote on the twitter.
Though Army sources said Dar was a stone-pelter, the latter said he was returning home after casting his vote when jawans picked him up.
