More probe by Defence Ministry

The Defence Minister is not satisfied with the report submitted by the Army about the Nyoma incident in which jawans and officers are reported to have clashed on a minor issue. But the report submitted by the Army is only “preliminary” in character and has not to be considered the final finding. But there are indications that the Defence Minister thinks there is more than what meets the eye because the rumour of Defence Ministry thinking of disbanding the unit concerned after enquiry is completed cannot be taken lightly. Defence Ministry has to be more sensitive to the security of our borders in a place like Nyoma, so close to the Chinese border. We cannot afford even the slightest lack of cohesion among the personnel of armed forces. More responsibility of manning the units devolves on the shoulders of the officers. The profile of Indian army as the world’s most disciplined army has to be maintained at all cost. The first impression one gets after going through this ugly incident is that the misunderstanding could have removed if the entire matter had been handled with care and caution.
