Farooq Ahmad Dar, who was tied to an army jeep and paraded during the violence-hit April 9 by-polls in Srinagar, had cast his vote before he was used as a "human shield", a police investigation has confirmed. Dar, a Kashmiri shawl maker, had preserved his voting slip. The police report has said that Dar "had cast his vote at a polling booth in his native village" and was "picked up by the army during stone pelting and tied to the bonnet of a vehicle as human shield under threat". It also says he was "kept under wrongful confinement" and was paraded before he was released.
