Srinagar, July 31 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the High Court Bar Association (HCBA) has condemned use of brute force on civilians by forces in Pulwama an termed it the worst kind of human rights violations.

The HCBA in its executive committee meeting also expressed surprise over the reasoning given by the Army Tribunal, in granting bail to the army officials, who were convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment by General Court Martial in 2014, for killing three Kashmir civilians, on the ground that the deceased were terrorists, who infiltrated across the border or were crossing over to the other side cannot be ruled out, because they were wearing Pathan suits, which are worn by terrorists.

It added, “The order of the Army Tribunal should be challenged by the puppet authorities before the Supreme Court of India and if they don’t do so, then the victim family should come forward and assail the said order before the apex court and the Bar Association shall always be ready to provide all the necessary legal aid and assistance to the victim families, as and when they approach the Bar Association, for the said purpose.”
