I had originally thought this was a TAR-21. My mistake. The weapon in the photo is a Belgian FN Herstal F2000 Tactical Assault Rifle. Thanks to anon in the comments section and India Today’s Sandeep Unnithan for pointing this out!
In Srinagar, back Tuesday
I’m in Srinagar — here to do a special report on the first rail link in the Kashmir valley. Irrelevant sidenote: the PM’s security force have spanking new FN F2000 Tactical Assault Rifles (see photo)! Smooth. Will post a video of that when I get back. Sorry for the hopeless picture quality. This was taken with my hopeless 2MP phone camera, using terrible zoom. I really do need to get one of those 5MP phones at the very least.
