On Wednesday, Gogoi was briefly detained by police in Srinagar after an altercation when he and his driver were allegedly trying to enter a hotel with an 18-year-old woman, according to a police official.

The state police has initiated an inquiry into the incident involving Gogoi, who was set free after being detained briefly.

Gogoi had sparked a row in April last year when he tied a local to his jeep and paraded him in Budgam district, apparently to escape stone pelting

The Army has also ordered a court of inquiry into the hotel incident. Army Chief Bipin Rawat has said exemplary punishment would be given to the Major if he was found guilty of "any offence".
