Three more videos have surfaced on social media amid raging controversy over Indian Army trussing up a young Kashmiri on their jeep's bonnet as a "human shield" while rescuing election officials and security personnel from a stone-pelting mob on April 9.
The latest videos apparently show security personnel retaliating to the outrage caused by the video of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans being beaten, heckled and hurled stones at by a mob in Jammu and Kashmir's Budgam district on April 9. The video made headlines after going viral on social media on April 13.

One of the latest videos, shared by Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on his Twitter account on Saturday (April 15), shows four Indian Army men holding down a youth with their boots and beating him with sticks. According to Farooq, the incident took place in Pulwama.

Two Indian soldiers were also seen forcing the Kashmiri youth to the ground. While one was standing on his legs, the other was repeatedly hitting him with a stick as the man continued to scream in pain.

When the young man tried to get up, two more soldiers appear. While grabbed the man's hair, forcing him back down, the other pressed the youth's upper back. The other soldier continued to beat him brutally.

In another video, which was also shared by Farooq, six Kashmiri youth held in a security forces vehicle were forced to chant anti-Pakistan slogans like "Pakistan murdabad."
"Azaadi chahiyay tum ko (do you want freedom)?" asked the soldier before slapping them and hitting them with a stick. One of the youth was bleeding from the head, but the army man kept on hitting him.
