Violence spikes in Indian Kashmir after videos inflame tension
Several people were injured after violence broke out between students and government forces in parts of Srinagar, in the restive northern Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, on Monday (17 April).
With the Indian Army facing flak for using a man as a shield against stone pelters in Jammu and Kashmir, a former chief has said the action was a violation of its code on human rights - but added that the "exceptional circumstances" in Kashmir valley should also be kept in mind. He further stated that he was then tied to the jeep's bumper and driven around nine villages, where local people were astonished at the sight of him.
A video of the episode widely circulated on social media exemplifies for many viewers the human rights abuses allegedly committed by Indian security forces battling to contain a separatist insurgency now in its 28th year.
Reuters reports: Police fired tear gas to scatter students in Srinagar, the latest outbreak of protests since demonstrations last week after a botched by-election in which at least eight people were killed. "The action on students inside college campuses is unprecedented, and a proof enough that the forces have no accountability in Kashmir and have been given a free hand to do as they please", Imran said. In another video, a group of workers from the ruling political party of the state reportedly renounced mainstream politics. Admitting that situation in Kashmir valley was deteriorating, they said the authorities were apprehensive that this summer too will be "hot" like a year ago when mass scale protests marred the state for more than five months following Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani's death in June.
The Pakistan envoy also suggested that the new U.S. administration back a peace process in Afghanistan for which Islamabad would be willing to play a role to end this war that has brought so much grief to the people of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

A new wave of Kashmir uprising, sparked by last July's killing by Indian security forces of a young freedom fighter, Burhan Wani, remains invincible in the face of Indian military might. "We are also mulling to include charges like abduction and endangering the life of the man in the report", a senior police official said Monday, on condition of anonymity.
His brother Fayaz Ahmad had told DNA that Dar had even cast his vote before he left to attend the condolence meeting of a relative when he was allegedly caught by the army and tied to the bonnet of their jeep to keep stone throwers at bay. A warning can be heard saying stone pelters will meet this fate.
"This is a phenomenon that has been going on for the last 27 years", Khurram Parvez, a leading Kashmiri human rights activist jailed last year, said.
As the using of human shields is considered a war crime under the Geneva Convention, the attorney general's support for using human shields in Kashmir is a clear call for the violation of global law.
