Army Chief Bipin Rawat says Major Gogoi will be given exemplary punishment if found guilty

The Hush Post: Army Chief Bipin Rawat has said that exemplary punishment would be given to Major Leetul Gogoi if he was found guilty of “any offence”.

Major Gogoi was briefly detained by police on May 23 in Srinagar after an altercation when he was reportedly trying to go in a hotel with an 18-year-old woman, a report said.

“If any officer of the Indian Army is found guilty of any offence, we will take strictest possible action,” Rawat told reporters at Pahalgham while on a visit to the Army Goodwill School.

“If Major Gogoi has done something wrong, I assure you that he will be awarded punishment at the earliest…the punishment will set an example,” Rawat was quoted as saying.

The Jammu & Kashmir Police has initiated an inquiry into the incident involving Gogoi, whose decision to tie a civilian to the bonnet of his vehicle in Kashmir last year sparked a row, the report said.
