Srinagar: People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday said that the armed forces in Kashmir are using chemicals in encounters disfiguring their bodies, which is inhuman.
Mufti was reacting to an incident in Shopian, where government forces are seen in a video beating up youth who are carrying a body of militant.
Ms. Mufti tweeted that every human even a militant deserves dignity after death. “Armed forces use of chemicals in encounters disfiguring their bodies is inhuman. Imagine the emotions that’ll overcome a boy who sees his brother’s mutilated charred body. Would you be surprised if he picked up a gun? ” she added.
