Troopers sometimes forced to retaliate
SRINAGAR: A day after the killing of a civilian in South Kashmirs Padgampora hamlet of Pulwama district, Inspector General Border Security Force (BSF) Kashmir Frontier, Dr Jagat Singh Wednesday termed the incident unfortunate and said that an inquiry committee has been set up to probe the incident.
He said that whatever happened was unfortunate and it should not have happened. Some time troopers face a tough situation while dealing with violent protesters and they are forced to retaliate, he said.
Talking to reports on the sidelines of a function at Humhama headquarters, Dr Singh said that the youth of Kashmir should differentiate between good and bad. Joining militancy is not going to help any youth in Kashmir.
