HT reports:

Jammu and Kashmir police has used popular video-sharing website Youtube to arrest a youth who was allegedly involved in beating up a policeman in Srinagar’s old city during this year’s summer unrest. Shadab Hashmi, 18, who is a high school student, was arrested on Monday after police identified him
from a video clip posted on Youtube.

The incident of manhandling of the policeman, who was critically injured, had taken place during the protests over the June 11 killing of Tufail Mattoo in tear smoke shelling by police in Gojwara area of the city.

In the video clip, a boy can be seen running after a policeman who is armed with an AK assault rifle. The youth pushes the policeman to the ground, disarms him and beats him.

However, the policeman, Constable Mushtaq Ahmad, somehow managed to get hold of his rifle and ran away from the spot.

A constable with an assault rifle being manhandled by an unarmed school child? What’s going on?
