Ladakh revolt: Colonel, 2 majors, captain to be court-martialled

Ladakh revolt

In an unprecedented action, the Army is going to court martial as many as 168 personnel, including a colonel, two majors, a captain and 17 JCOs (junior commissioned officers), for the violent clash between officers and jawans of an artillery regiment in Nyoma sector of eastern Ladakh on May, 2012.

There are 15 officers and over 200 other ranks in the dock in the four cases of officer-jawan face-offs in armoured and artillery units deployed in Nyoma, Samba, Patiala and Gurdaspur areas, which have shaken the 1.13-million strong Army like never before in recent times, as was earlier reported by TOI.
