    Indian paramilitary soldiers carry the dead body of a suspected female Maoist guerrilla at Salboni, some 140 kms west of Kolkata, on June 16, 2010, following a gun battle with Indian security forces in Ranjha forest, close to the Maoist stronghold of Lalgarh. Three women were among eight Maoist guerrillas killed in a gunfight while a large cache of arms and ammunition was seized by Indian security forces.

    Above image was published in the Mainstream Newspaper Times Of India news. some points to ponder about this pic:

    1.Isn't it inhumane on security forces side to carry a dead body that too of a female in such a derogatory manner????
    2.Isn't TOI being irresponsible by printing out such images.
    3.Such images gives perfect ammunition to Human rights groups for psy-op against security forces .

    If i can remember exactly there were similar images in media about BDR soldiers carrying dead bodies of BSF soldiers on poles and i remembered the outrage it made in india.So why the indian forces do behave in similar fashion?
