Bhim Singh has urged the President of India Pranab Mukherjee for his immediate intervention in the interest of safety of children of Kashmir and protection of the civil rights of the people of J&K who has been targeted by Israel-made pellet guns.

Prof. Bhim Singh who is also the Executive Chairman of State Legal Aid Committee, J&K has urged President to use his exclusive power assigned to the President of India under Article 370, though, temporary, yet applicable to the State of J&K in defense of the children of J&K who has been targeted by Israel-made pellet guns to create a terror among the children of Kashmir who have been marching on the streets of Kashmir.

Demanding urgent inquiry by a sitting judge of the Supreme Court on the pellet guns used against the children in Kashmir, Prof Bhim Singh said that the experts have admitted that pellet guns don’t follow a definite trajectory. Pellets penetrate soft tissues of skin. Eyes, being delicate, are most vulnerable to damage. Once a pellet goes inside an eye, it shatters the tissues and causes multiple damages.

Prof.Bhim Singh urged the Home Minister of India, Rajnath Singh to hold an appropriate inquiry into the use of pellet guns. What is the source of pellet guns and from where they had entered J&K? Is it a fact that pellet guns have been manufactured in Israel and brought by the Govt. to J&K? What is the purpose of use of pellet guns against the children of Kashmir?. He also questioned the inability of the J&K police force to use legitimate methods to control the mob fury as it is being done in other states of the country.

He also demanded the number of the casualties and number of those children/minors who have been injured/wounded by the pellet guns during the Kashmir unrest in the last couple of months.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that he has invited letters/names/information from all the parents and relations of those children who lost their eyes or were wounded so that an appropriate litigation is brought.
