Major Gen faces court martial for sending porn clips

Friday, 01 November 2019 | PNS | New Delhi

A Court of Inquiry (CoI) was ordered into the matter after the NCC girls complained against the officer.

The matter came to light when the NCC cadets brought the matter to higher authorities and complained that the Major General used to send such pornographic clips through WhatsApp and obscene text messages, sources said here on Thursday.

The CoI, headed by a Lt-General, found the senior officer prima facie guilty of the charges. Around 10 officers, including another Major General, have faced court martial in cases of “moral turpitude”, corruption and sexual harassment over the last couple of years.

While the name of the Major General was withheld in this case because the charges are yet to be proved in a trial, sources also said the officer is retiring from service in a few weeks.

He will be “attached” to an Army unit for the court martial under Section 123 of the Army Act of 1950. Military personnel can be punished under the Army Act if the trial or court martial begins within three years of their retirement.
