A Court of Inquiry has been initiated against an ex-Army colonel for misuse of his position while serving. This, after two soldiers wrote to Defence Minister Rajnath Singh that while serving, the colonel allegedly had sex with a civilian employee at his office.
The soldiers from infantry battalion in the complaint had stated that they had made a video of the incident after they were victimised by the officer.
Sources said the colonel was stationed in Abohar in Punjab. That is when the incident took place. He has superannuated now.
The soldiers of 25 Rajputana Rifles wrote to the Defence Minister that they were being victimised for having exposed the deeds of the colonel.
They alleged in their complaint that they made the video in order to teach the Colonel a lesson as he used to mistreat them.
The colonel, though retired, will have to face the inquiry under the Army rules and regulations.
The Indian Army also stated that during the inquiry, it will also be probed whether the soldiers allegedly tried to blackmail the Colonel.
