In a major stet back for  major Leetul Gogoi ,  a court of inquiry  has found him guilty of fraternising with a local and being away from his place of duty while in an operational area ,  army sources said today.  Orders have been issued to initiate disciplinary action against him, they said.

It may be re- called that Gogoi, had  hit the headlines last year after he tied a man to a jeep in Kashmir purportedly as a shield against stone-pelters,

The court has held him accountable for “fraternising” with a local in spite of instructions to the contrary and “being away from the place of duty while in operational area”, the sources said.

On May 23, police detained Gogoi following an altercation when he was allegedly trying to enter a Srinagar hotel with an 18-year-old woman. Days later, the Army ordered the CoI into the incident.

Army chief Gen Bipin Rawat had said in Pahalgam that exemplary punishment would be given to Gogoi if he was found guilty of “any offence”.
