NC woman legislator, activists protest award to army major



Srinagar:Women workers of the opposition National Conference (NC) on Wednesday protested against the award of the Army Chief’s commendation card to an officer who had tied a local to the front of a jeep in Jammu and Kashmir.

Led by NC legislator Shameema Firdous, the NC women activists started a protest march from the party headquarters in Srinagar.

The women were soon stopped by the police.

The protesting women raised slogans against the Peoples Democratic Party-Bharatiya Janata Party coalition government for overlooking human rights in the Kashmir Valley.

They sought punishment for the army major who had tied Javed Dar, a shawl weaver, to the front of a jeep on April 9 in Budgam district to avoid stone pelting.
