India – Military Killings – Repeal Shoot-to-Kill Law

India military killings: Calls to repeal shoot-to-kill law

INDIA (STL.News) There have been protests in a district of northeast India following the deaths of 14 civilians who were mistakenly killed by the Indian Army.

Soldiers trying to ambush rebels fighting for more autonomy opened fire on a pick-up truck carrying coal miners last week.

The operation is renewing calls for the repeal of a shoot-to-kill law that gives soldiers immunity from prosecution.
