Re: Indian Army: News and Discussions 11 June 2014

^In that case I agree to the punishments meted out to the sahayak and the soldiers, but what about the punishment given to the officers? Do you agree with the punishment? Should it have been more harsh?

Re: Indian Army: News and Discussions 11 June 2014

At this point I am not even disputing the punishments given to the soldiers for mutiny, frankly I think they are fair, except in the case of the sahayak. He is also charged with mutiny. How does a guy who is beaten up so bad that he is bedridden, take part in a mutiny? Also, somebody said that it wa...

On top of that he was stripped and exposed to the cold, probably suffering from hypothermia. How is this not life-threatening? If the ...
