The British Army officer threatened to hand him over to the squaddies unless he got the information he was looking for. The IRA man didn't reply. The British soldiers in the room then pushed him on to the floor and removed his handcuffs ; one of them knelt on his back and two others placed one foot each on his back and his left shoulder. His right arm was grabbed and twisted from the wrist and his head was forced back by the hair.
