The statement issued by PUCL and MSD said, “We, the concerned citizens of India, are shocked by the action of Major Gogoi of tying a Kashmiri artisan to the army jeep and parading him in villages in Jammu and Kashmir as a human shield … and statement by the Army Chief General Bipin Rawat defending and justifying his action and awarding a special award”. “The Army is using Armed Forces Special Powers Act (ASPFA) blatantly which would not justify both the actions which are illegal, unconstitutional, and inhuman.—KMS
