Police said they were investigating the incident which took place late on Tuesday in Kunan, a village north of Srinagar. “Two army men in civil dress entered our house in the afternoon demanding food and shelter.

Mohammad Usman, a witness, said villagers beat up the soldiers, stripped them, shaved their heads and paraded them through the village market. “Police fired in the air to disperse rescue the soldiers,” said a cop. reuters
