Security Forces To Use Less Lethal Plastic Pellets In Kashmir

The Union Home Ministry is planning to introduce less lethal, “plastic bullets” to fight against protesters in Jammu and Kashmir.

Jammu and Kashmir has seen unprecedented violence since July 8 last year after Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani was killed by security forces.

The Centre said it was exploring options to initiate a dialogue in Kashmir, including with the separatists, but none had came forward in the past and it had hit a dead end.

Government also said it was considering enhanced use of “bunkers” to protect security forces from stone throwers after the annual ‘Darbar’ shift from Jammu to Srinagar in the next few days.
