I don't think onyone has a right to beat a pregnant woman till she bleads through her any situation no matter what the reason is. Be it a captain, be it a major, be it a president of nation. This is against human right and women right too. There must be a further investigation on this issue. There are millions of terrorits and millions of them has got shot or caught as they are destined to but an innocent pregnant woman should not be hospitalised. Let the so called Captain Adhinak and his authority be punished if India is a democratic country. If they are capable, let them thrash terrorists but no innocent people.
