To commit brutality and try to suppress the rebellion. Medical record have no hospital seal.
Vijay, I agree. There is no justifiable reason for such behavior. Honest, do you think any hospital will write assault by security forces!? Medical record pointing out assault by security forces. Something's not correct. What else you could expect from them, this is what they have been doing to the innocent Kashmirees for decades. Where are the Indian? Proud Pakistani. Bilal, Something is clearly going on in that valley. And if India was so truthful then it would allow a UN team to visit Kashmir for themselves if there is normality there.
They dont which clearly shows they have Electro torture stories hell of a lot to hide. As the saying goes they are afraid that many hidden skeletons will fall out of the closet. Vijay, Read Indian human Rights Commission report all ready issued.
Look closely at the medical report, see a lady in single piece. Which hospital is this? Ayush Chaudhary, do you beilve he is Vijay? Deepak, Hospital need not to mention who did it. They can only document injuries and stamp their findings.
Abid Khan's allegations needs to be test in the court of law. Eagle eyes. I know this guy. Lives in AJK. Rohit Gupta. Bilal, You caught it man!! Bharat Dave. Bilal, Yes. Don't believe. Where is the proof that the facts stated are correct? Babu jaleela. Where is the proof?
Need concrete evidence. Maybe the Indian army needs to look at itself to find the real terrorists in occupied Kashmir.
Nice try! If such a thing happens, Congress and opposition would have pounced on the opportunity. They pounce on government even when there is no opportunity. Brutality will end soon. Hitler was elected so Modi Asian Hitler. Both are one and same. If it is true I condem.
Iqbal Zaman. Sad and shameful Rohit Gupta, you probably would believeif Modi say that sun dose not arise from east. I am only here to read comments by Indians to justify torture for a book project. Love India. Sep 17, am.

What you can expect from Indians they even cant provide civilian rights to the Electro torture stories as well as hindus lower cast in their own country, and ofcourse UN is sleeping after taking NYQUIL :. M P Dhore, Principal, Nagpur. Don't know how much this story tells the fact but I condemn and oposore any kind of brutality anywhere in the world. Humans should treat other humans with love and respect irrespective of caste, religion, color, nationality, language etc. Salaria, Aamir Ahmad.
What else is called barbaricism, cruelty, brutality, cowardness, racism and crimes against humanity? Rohit Gupta, yes after the tortured him they took him to a doctor to create medical records??
Ayush Chaudhary Wait for the time when same will happen to you and everybody will believe you and nobody will care. Imtiaz Hunzai Berlinhow did they let you enter berlin. Raj, pl don't believe this Vijay. Prashant Gupta. Very hard to believe.
What is the source of information if all networks to outside world are disconnected. Vorshal Handa. I do not see the name of the hospital or the name of the clinic. I would also like to know the criminal record of this person in the photo.
Bilal, yes, a doctor would just write "trauma" or at most "trauma due to assault" and not "trauma due to assault by security forces". Medical record says it was done by security forces. Medical record should have mentioned name also, who did it Old saying, do not throw stones if you live in glass houses.Electro torture stories
