The Chief Of Army Staff General Bipin Rawat has awarded Major Leetul Gogoi, the officer who placed a Kashmiri man on the bonnet of his jeep during recent protests in Kashmir, with a Chief of Army Staff Commendation Card. Sources in the army said, "Major Gogoi has been awarded COAS Commendation Card for sustained efforts in Counter-insurgency operations". These operations, they added, include the actions of the Major on April 9 during the Srinagar by-election, when a local -- later identified as Farooq Ahmad Dar -- was tied to the bonnet of an Army vehicle in Kashmir's Budgam.
