Ladakh base revolt: Army to act against commanding officer, others

New Delhi: The Indian Army has announced disciplinary action against the Commanding Officer and three other officers of the Ladakh-based artillery regiment in Nyoma in connection with a revolt by soldiers there in April 2012.

Action will also be taken against 17 JCO's and 147 soldiers.

The soldiers had clashed with officers in 2012 after a soldier was brutally beaten up. Sources say the disciplinary action could include court martial.
