Disciplinary action against Major Leetul Gogoi


Indian Army has ordered a disciplinary action against Major Leetul Gogoi for being in a hotel in Srinagar with a local girl on May 23.

A court of inquiry  was set up after a controversy broke out over Major Gogoi’s presence at the Srinagar hotel with a local girl, and the court of inquiry has found him accountable for “fraternizing with locals [in violation of] instructions to the contrary” and “being away from the place of duty while in operational area.”

Jammu and Kashmir Police detained Gogoi from the Srinagar hotel after an argument broke out between him and the hotel’s staff.   After the incident, Army chief General Bipin Rawat had promised exemplary punishment for Gogoi if the major was found to be in violation of the service’s rules.
