Youth gets beaten up & forced to shout anti-Pakistan slogans. Video gets viral on social media after which the army said it would ascertain the veracity of the footage and take appropriate action.
The clips were posted just a day after another video emerged, which purportedly showed a youth tied to a jeep as a human shield and being driven through Budgam by army personnel.
In one of the videos that surfaced on Saturday, four army personnel are seen catching hold of student from Pulwama Degree College. They were seen throwing him to the ground and thrashing him with a cane.
In the second video, three youth who seem to be in army custody in a vehicle are forced by a soldier to abuse Pakistan and shout slogans like “Pakistan Murdabad”.
“Azaadi chahiyay tum ko? ” the soldier is seen asking the youth, before slapping them and hitting them with a stick.
Blood is seen to be oozing from the forehead of one of the youths in the army vehicle.
“Action will be taken against those found guilty of misconduct,” said Defence spokesman Colonel Rajesh Kalia.
