New Delhi :

After a jawan of the Indian Army died, possibly of heart attack, the entire unit was asked to march 10 km from the base camp in North east. The situation got worst when 4-5 jawans in the area had scuffle with officers who were dealing with the situation. The army has confirmed that this scuffle has resulted in injuries.

 The Army was compelled to provide statement over issue after reports emerged on social media of a mutiny-like situation involving officers and jawans in the area. The 10-km march was a punishment drill which was ordered on the unit after a physical confrontation between a Captain and a jawan, according to some officials.

During the clash, a Captain and three officers were badly injured with the officer reportedly being in critical condition with skull injuries.

Army Headquarters in Delhi, while confirming the death of a jawan in the subsequent 10-km march, have denied that any other individual has been seriously injured. The Army has also denied that reinforcement units have moved into the area with the situation getting out of hand.
