Promising exemplary punishment for Major Gogoi if found guilty, Army chief General Bipin Rawat on Friday said that no officer at any rank in the force will be spared if they have done anything wrong. “If any officer of the Indian Army, at any rank, does anything wrong, appropriate action will be taken against them. If Major Gogoi has done something wrong, I assure you that strict action will be taken against them. And the action will be such that it will set an example for the future,” he said.

Major Gogoi has been caught in a controversy after he was held from a hotel in Jammu and Kashmir with a woman. He along with the woman was taken to a police station from where he was handed over to his unit.

Police said that at 11 am they got a call from Hotel Grand Mamta about an altercation at the hotel. “A police party was deputed to the hotel and it surfaced that a woman (name withheld) and a man identified as Sameer Ahmed of Budgam had come to see some person,” a police statement said.
