The Indian Army today said it has taken serious note of the January 18 assault incident wherein one Army jawan identified as Robinson Komou, of 2nd Assam Regiment, was allegedly assaulted by some personnel of IRB “without any provocation.”
Reports said the victim was assaulted by IR jawans while he was returning from Railway station, Dimapur after booking train ticket.
“The Assam Regiment jawan’s cell phone and other personal documents were also stolen by the IRB persons,” a defence handout said today.
A FIR has been reportedly lodged against the defaulters under IPC section 325 and section 395 with the east police station. It stated that jawan, found in an unconscious state after the incident, was undergoing treatment in the Military Hospital.
“The incident has been viewed very seriously by Army authorities at all levels,” stated the release.
Army authorities, concerned over the incident, deputed a Brigadier and a Colonel from Rangapahar Military Station, who had met the SP and conveyed that such heinous acts call for prompt and strict action by police, it said.
The Army authorities reportedly brought out that there were large number of soldiers from Nagaland who were serving in various parts of the country and they return to Nagaland to meet their families and friends.
The army authorities said such “atrocities” on Army jawan could act as a catalyst to disturb peace and security in the locality unless Police authorities initiate action to prevent such incidents and book defaulters.
