Army orders inquiry


New Delhi : The Army has instituted a court of inquiry into the alleged suicide by a 33-year-old jawan Lance Naik Roy Mathew, whose body was found hanging from a rope in an abandoned barrack.

“It is very likely that the guilt of letting down his superiors or conveying a false impression led to Lance Naik Mathew taking the extreme step,” says an Army press release, blaming the reporter of a website who aired his views on the social media without his knowledge.–
