Srinagar, In occupied Kashmir, Indian police and other paramilitary forces are all set to introduce Taser guns which will be used against peaceful pro-liberation protestors.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the Indian authorities have ordered for Taser, an electro-shock gun considered to be safer and less lethal in controlling violence. In Indian state of Punjab, police has already issued 80 Tasers to its personnel and other states like Madhya Pradesh and the anti-hijack teams of India’s National Security Guards have also ordered for such guns. Indian Police and Central Reserve Police Force personnel in occupied Kashmir have been regularly using bullets and tear-gas shells to kill or injure peaceful pro-freedom protesters. The firearms have also killed a number of civilians during the anti-India demonstrations. Public circles and international human rights groups have been continuously condemning the police and CRPF personnel for using disproportionate force against peaceful protesters resulting in dozens of deaths of innocent people in the occupied territory. “Taser can be more lethal weapon in the hands of policemen. When troopers’ intention is to kill, he will kill with whatever weapon is in his hands,” said a Kashmir University student.
