Army has attached a Brigadier serving in north Kashmir for his alleged â€œimproper relations with a woman.â€�
Official sources said that the officer who commanded a brigade near Line of Control in north Kashmir was attached last week with Srinagar Sub-Area of 15 Corps Headquarters. However, they said the accused officer had completed his term and new commander has joined in North Kashmir. â€œBefore he could join new place of posting, he was attached.â€�
â€œThe woman with whom the officer is alleged to have had links was under the surveillance of Military Intelligence (MI) for some period,â€� a report by Indian Express said, quoting sources in Srinagar-based 15 Corps Headquarters.
â€œSources say it was an adverse MI report on the activities of the woman which led to a watch being kept on the Brigade Commander, following which more incriminating evidence was found,â€� added the report.
It said in October, a Brigadier who had been commanding a Brigade in the North East was punished with 10 years of loss of seniority and given severe reprimand after a court martial found him guilty of improper relations with an Army Colonelâ€™s wife.
