A video purportedly showing soldiers standing with one foot on the face and neck of slain Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists Abu Ismail and Abu Qasim has prompted the Indian Army to order an inquiry.

The video went viral on social media platforms, following which the army assured suitable action.

The 14-second video is believed to have been shot on Thursday after the LeT terrorists who had masterminded the Amarnath Yatra attack, were gunned down in an encounter with security forces in Aragam-Nowgam area on the outskirts of Srinagar.

The army has taken cognisance of the video and suitable action is being taken, said Colonel Rajesh Kalia, defence spokesman, at Srinagar.

With the encounter, the army had dealt a major body blow to Lashkar, avenging the Amarnath attack in which eight pilgrims were killed and 20 were injured.
