More trouble as Srinagar court orders probe into Major Gogoi’s conduct
Srinagar, Sep 2: A court in Srinagar has asked the Jammu and Kashmir government to conduct a thorough probe against Major Leetul Gogoi in connection with the May 23 incident when he picked up a fight with the staff of a hotel here.
It was alleged that he had picked up a fight after he allegedly refused to be allowed to check in with a teenage girl. The Major was also accompanied by a local man, Sameer Ahmed, who later turned out to be a soldier. The trio, it may be recalled were detained briefly.
The court observed that the probe into the matter was conducted in a very casual manner, without ascertaining the facts. The court also said that the matter required further probing.
It may be recalled that Major Gagoi was court-marshalled after an Army Court of Inquiry indicted him for fraternising with a local woman in a Srinagar hotel and being away from his place of duty in May this year.
