Centre Informs SC: Rubber-based Shots to be Introduced to Control Stone Pelters in Kashmir Valley
As per reports, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee met prime minister Narendra Modi on Monday and sought funds over Rs 10,000 crore to be released due to the state. In a nearly half an hour meeting, Banerjee discussed the debt situation in the state; however, there was no discussion on the Teesta River water sharing with Bangladesh.
As per reports, the Supreme Court on Monday was informed by the centre that the government is going to introduce rubber-based shots which will be helpful to tackle the stone pelters in Kashmir Valley. The new Standard operating Procedures (SoP) has reportedly been issued by the government.
This came two weeks after the government was asked by the apex court to try alternative measure other than the pellet guns to control the protesters, so that nobody gets physically hurt.
