The Indian Army has zero tolerance for acts like extramarital affairs This is important as the army is a fighting force and any such act can undermine morale and fighting efficacy of the Army. A case has been reported by the Times of India that a General Court Martial assembled at HQs  33 Corps close to Siliguri in North Bengal to try a Brigadier who was alleged to have stolen the affections of a junior officer, a Lt Col's wife, who was part of his regiment. The Brigadier was commanding an important formation on the India -China border and thankfully he

has been removed from command.

The name of the Brigadier is withheld from Media but it's not important, as what is important is that acts of moral turpitude have no place in a fighting force.The case was brought out by the wife

of the Brigadier who had got a whiff of the romance and sent a letter to the Army Chief General Rawat. After due inquiry aGCM assembled and the Brigadier had no choice but to plead guilty This saved him and he was given loss of seniority of 10 years as well as a "severe reprimand".

The Brigadiers army career is over and he has been removed from command.  But I will say he is lucky as others have been dismissed from service for such acts. The COAS may yet not confirm the findings and sentence and order the GCM to reconvene for enhancing the punishment. All credit to the wife of the Brigadier who blew the lid on this extramarital affair of her husband.

    Loss of mere seniority of Brigadier rank officer for unacceptable crime of moral terpitude is inadequate. Surely this will not be confirmed by Army HQ he will have to quit in disgrace.
