New Delhi: Army Chief General Bipin Rawat on Tuesday said that any case of moral turpitude and corruption against Major Leetul Gogoi will be dealt with sternly.
Speaking on Major Leetul Gogoi, Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat said action will be taken based on Major Gogoi’s guilt.
“If it’s related directly to moral turpitude then we’ll take action accordingly. If it is something else then a punishment will be given to him according to the crime he has committed,” he said.
The Army Chief further assured that any case of moral turpitude and corruption will be dealt with sternly.
“I had clearly said that any case of moral turpitude and corruption will be dealt with sternly. A court of inquiry has been conducted which has recommended that we should go in for court martial proceedings for whatever he has been found guilty of.”
Major Gogoi first made headlines in April last year, when he tied a civilian to the bonnet of his vehicle as a “human shield” and drove through Jammu and Kashmir’s Budgam during the Srinagar constituency by-elections.
He was later awarded the Army chief's ‘Commendation Card.’
