Srinagar/May,24: Farooq Ahmad Dar, a Kashmiri civilian who was used as a human shield has called the army inquiry into the incident as “complete eyewash”.
“It is a complete eyewash,” he said about the inquiry. “They were never serious. I am a small person and why should anyone care,” Dar said, according to Firstpost.com.
Dar said that he was yet to record his statement with the local police. “It has been over a month since then and I am yet to hear from the local police. Even my statement has not been registered,” Dar told PTI.
He also claimed that Army Major Leetul Gogoi had lied about him being a “ringleader of a stone-pelting gang.”
“The army major is lying to save himself,” Hindustan Times quoted Dar. “Had I been the ringleader of stone-pelting mobs, I would not have cast my vote.”
Dar also reiterated his resolve to never vote again. “I won’t vote again after what they did to me. I will boycott voting,” the report quoted Dar as saying.
