Another video from the volatile Sunday showed a man, identifed as Farooq Dar, tied in front of an army jeep on the polling day in Budgam's Beerwah.
In one such video, shared on Twitter by National Conference spokesman Junaid Matoo, the security forces are seen allegedly shooting a stone-pelter in the head during a stone pelting incident.
Times of India reported that the Centre has taken note of the incident and also of the probe by Army which concluded that the commanding officer took the decision reluctantly.
A video of the episode circulated widely on social media, in a reminder for some of alleged human rights abuses perpetrated by Indian security forces as they struggle to contain a separatist insurgency that is now in its 28 year.
Kashmir, a Muslim-majority region, is controlled by nuclear-armed neighbours India and Pakistan.
According to The Times of India, the Union government has chose to back the security personnel responsible for taking the decision to tie up an "alleged" stone-pelter to the bonnet of a jeep to prevent any kind of attack on the convoy during election duty on April 9.
Meanwhile, the Kashmir High Court Bar Association in a statement termed the actions of government forces on Saturday in Pulwama Degree college as inhuman and beastly and strongly condemned the killing of a youth at Batamaloo in Srinagar.
A Hindi man can be heard saying "stone throwers will meet a similar fate" as the convoy drives past horrified villagers during the Srinagar by-election.
