The incident that happened on April 12 triggered a violent protest in Handwara. Firing by security forces left five people dead. An army bunker in the area was removed following a week-long curfew.

 

In her previous account, the girl had stated that two local boys had followed her when she entered a public lavatory while returning from school.

She now says that it was an armyman who molested her.

 


“When I came out from the washroom, an armyman held my hand. I managed to free myself from his clutches and ran outside screaming. Then I was taken to the police station,” the girl told reporters on May 16.

She claims that at the police station she was threatened not to speak against the army. She alleges that cops abused and assaulted her inside the police station.

“What I was saying in the video was all what they forced me to say. I was all alone and none of my family members were there when they made the video clip,” she said.
