A day after a video showing a youth allegedly tied to an army jeep as a human shield against stone pelting went viral, two videos, purportedly showing army soldiers beating up youths and forcing them to chant anti-Pakistan slogans, have surfaced, according to PTI.

In one of the videos, a student of Pulwama Degree College is purportedly seen pinned to the ground by four army personnel and being thrashed with a cane. In the second video, three youths are purportedly seen in an army vehicle and being forced by a soldier to abuse Pakistan and chant slogan “Pakistan murdabad”. “Azaadi chahiyay tumko? (Do you want freedom?)” the soldier is seen asking the youths before slapping them and hitting them with a stick.

One of the youths in the army vehicle seems to be injured as blood is seen oozing from his forehead in the video. It is not yet clear who shot the videos but they are being circulated across the social media platforms, leading to condemnation from the netizens of Kashmir.

Defence spokesman Colonel Rajesh Kalia said the veracity of the videos is being ascertained. “Action will be taken against those found guilty of misconduct,” Col Kalia said.

Yesterday, a video went viral on social media in which a youth was seen allegedly tied to an army jeep as a human shield against stone pelting and paraded through several villages in Budgam district.

The video drew widespread condemnation, with former chief minister Omar Abdullah terming it as “shocking” and prompting Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to seek a detailed report from the state police. Army also began an internal investigation into the incident. No army or defence officials were available for a comment on today’s videos.

Earlier, a video showing Kashmiri youth assaulting CRPF jawans also went viral on social media, sparking widespread criticism. Five peopler were arrested by the J&K police on Friday in connection with the case.

          Why do you guys bare? Just leave Kashmir and go to Pakstan the way Kashmiri pandits left their valley. What is the big deal for you guys? Why do you tolerate? Now, it is your turn to feel the pain that Kashmiri pandits went through. We will make you leave our country the way you made those thousand innocent people leave their valley, killed them, tortured them. You are lucky enough that you are just getting sticks from Indian Army, you guys deserve even worse. This is called Karma "What goes around comes around". Wish you loads of Pain and Torture :)

                  Kashmir is a part of India and would remain an Indian territory. Anti India activist and activities need to be dealt with by response matching terrorist and their istants in their modus ope i.

                      Kashmiris throw stones at Indian army on daily basis, they boycott elections. The internet is awarming with video proofs on indian army brutalites on kashmiris (is there any video that shows Pak army is shooting/beating kashmiris in stan administered Kashmir?) The conclusion is very simple, kashmiris dont want to be a part of india. Also a large majority of indians hate muslims, then on what basis do they want a Muslim state (kashmir)?

                          This is widening the gulf between the state and its citizens. The damage being caused will not be easily undone.

                            Weldone Indian Army! Laaton ke bhoot baaton se nahi maante. Separatists are terrorists and they deserve this treatment. Previous governments have wasted enough tax payers' money on pleasing these gaddars.

                                What the army is supposed to do when they get stone pelted and injured? Do higiri? The intelligentsai should also give some recommendation on this!

                                  What you do to wayward children in family- cane. That only security forces did, no need to waste reams of paper.

                                    Where is the justice fro the armed personnel who sacrifice their lives everyday defending the country???????? The biased news media highlights only when these illiterate Kashmir separatist Jihadists are injured, beaten up, or killed. The bottom line is that these misguided and lazy Muslim stone pelters who are anti-national and the armed personnel have obligation to satisfy their deathwish by shooting them at sight.
