Tragic that two innocents died in firing at #Handwara protests. Hope J&K police catches the elements which spread rumours against the Army.Army spokesperson Lt Col N.N. Joshi said: “A video which surfaced is the statement of the girl and proves there was no molestation. It seems that it was a mala fide intent to malign the army.”— Aditya Raj Kaul (@AdityaRajKaul) 12 April 2016
