Army Chief General Bipin Rawat today asserted that any matter of moral turpitude and corruption will be dealt with sternly in Maj. Leetul Gogoi case. Replying to the media query on the sidelines of a function in New Delhi, General Rawat said, a court of inquiry has recommended that Army should go in for court martial proceedings in the case. He said the action will be taken based on his guilt that emerges from this.
The Army Chief added that if the case is related directly to moral turpitude then Army will take action accordingly. Maj. Gogoi came into controversy following an altercation at the hotel in Srinagar where he was allegedly trying to enter with an 18-year-old woman.
General Rawat said social media is here to stay and it is a cause of concern as country’s adversaries are using it in a large scale. He stressed the need to train the jawans and officers of the Indian Army to take advantage of social media. He added that the Army is setting up a special unit to train them.
