A Major General from Assam Rifles in the north-east has been dismissed without pension after a case of sexual harassment involving another serving officer.

The Court Martial proceedings against Major General RS Jaswal were confirmed by Army chief General Bipin Rawat, even though the orders were signed by the Army chief in July itself.

“Army Chief General Bipin Rawat has confirmed the sentence awarded to the officer. The decision of the Chief of Army Staff was intimated to the Major General by the 2 Corps Commander Lt Gen MJS Kahlon today in Ambala,” Army officials reportedly said.

An Army General Court Martial had in December last year recommended the dismissal of the Major General.

The officer had denied the charges against him by a woman officer of a captain rank.
