New Delhi: A day after police firing left three protesters dead in Handwara of Jammu and Kashmir, Army on Wednesday released a video clip of the girl talking about the incident. 

The video shows the girl completely rejecting the reports of being molested by any soldier. She however, claimed to have been harassed by some locals.

Narrating the whole incident, the girl claimed, she went to relieve herself near an Army bunker and when she came out she was slapped by a youth, who was accompanied by few others.

The girl has further alleged that the youths misbehaved with her and accused her of being with an Army soldier inside the toilet. She completely denied being with any security official.

The girl said she could identify the locals who harassed her.  

The video reveals how rumours of a molestation incident snowballed into a violent protest. However, Zeenews.com do not vouch for their authenticity of this clip.
