Indian Army new weapon of Kashmir War unleashed
NEW DELHI: In an effort to bring an alternative to the pellet guns, the Indian government on Monday said that non-penetrative plastic bullets may be used in Jammu and Kashmir for crowd control or stone-pelting mobs to reduce collateral damage during counter-insurgency operations.

The government sources, however, said the pellet guns will continue to be used as the last resort in the non-lethal category.

Senior Home Ministry officials said that thousands of plastic bullets have already been produced and sent to the  Kashmir  for use by the security forces deployed there. 

These bullets are said to be non-penetrative and can be fired from INSAS rifles.
