Pepper gun has deleterious effect: Untoo

Srinagar, Dec 25: The chairman of International Forum for Justice and Human Rights Forum Jammu Kashmir Muhammad Ahsan Untoo on Tuesday claimed that the Pepper Guns being used by the forces to quell protests had highly deleterious effect on the human life.
 “The use of Pepper Guns may result in the disability of neonates and it may also cause death to unborn baby in mother’s womb,” said Untoo in a statement today, adding that “the police and forces are using Pepper Guns despite clear cut orders from State Human Rights Commission against its use. The SHRC has stayed its use.”
