Guwahati, May 6, 2019
Major Leetul Gogoi is contemplating legal recourse against the punishment awarded to him in the Srinagar hotel incident case, ANI reported.
Major Gogoi has been punished by the Army with loss of seniority of six months following court-martial proceedings as a punishment for “fraternizing” with a local woman in a Srinagar hotel in May 2018.
Major Gogoi, who grabbed the headlines for using a human shield on his military jeep during the 2017 Srinagar by-poll, will be posted out of the Kashmir Valley.
The court had found Gogoi guilty of “fraternising” with a local in violation of official orders on the subject and for “being away from the place of duty while in operational area”.
The officer shall take recourse to the remedies as per the due course of law, sources close to the Army Major told ANI.
