The Army too is conducting a detailed investigation into the matter. Sources tell OneIndia that the government of India is however planning on backing the Army as it does not want the forces to be demoralised. The situation mandated desperate measures, a highly placed source said.

The J&K police however would probe into the matter and even file charges against the officer concerned. The video was filmed when polling officers faced a mob of stone pelters on April 9, when by-polls were held for the Srinagar parliamentary constituency.

The man was identified as Farooq Ahmad Dar, a resident of Sitaharaan village in Khag tehsil of Budgam district in central Kashmir and the army unit involved is 53 Rashtriya Rifles.
