    Doesn't look good for the Army's image :facepalm:

    PUNE: The Hinjewadi police on Sunday night arrested four rugby players of the Armoured Corps Centre, Ahmednagar, for allegedly thrashing four villagers of Mhalunge village in Mulshi taluka over a petty dispute. The incident took place outside the Balewadi sports complex hostel at Mhalunge around 7.30 pm.

    The arrested players are Sureshsingh Survirsingh Sajwan (32) of Uttarakhand, Rohitsingh Brajvarsingh Sivach (25) of Meerut, Rajsingh Pavankumar Panu (25) of Haryana and Jitendra Gaje Dhama (26) of Uttar Pradesh. Villagers Mahendra Nivrutti Golande (30), Ashish Sitaram Lokhande (20), Ranjit Shantaram Padale (21) and Bhusan Purshottam Padale (22) were also arrested following a a cross-complaint lodged by army man Sajwan.

    Inspector Parshuram Patil (crime) told TOI that the army men and other players had reached the sports complex on Sunday for practising rugby. Meanwhile, four villagers were going to Wakad on motorcycles. The villagers had a close shave when the Army players' vehicle took a U-turn and came in front of the motorcycles.

    According to Patil, the incident led to an altercation between the Army players and the villagers, and both groups engaged in a fracas. "One of the players hit villager Kunwal Padwal with a bat on his head, causing serious injuries. Three others were also injured in the incident," he added.

    Acting on a complaint registered by Mahendra Nivrutti Golande (30) of Mhalunge, the army men were arrested on charges of causing injuries to Padwal and others.

    The police produced both the groups before the court and sought their seven days' police custody remand. However, judicial magistrate first class Y P Marulkar rejected the pleas as no sufficient grounds were cited by the police for seeking their custody.

    Marulkar released Golande and others on personal bonds of Rs 15,000 each with one solvent surety of the same amount. They have been ordered to give attendance at the Hinjewadi police station every Thursday between 10 am and 12 noon till chargesheet against them were filed or next order, whichever was earlier. The court warned them not to tamper with the prosecution's evidence and co-operate with the police. The army men also were released on personal bonds of Rs 15,000 each.

    Meanwhile, the Army filed a plea to transfer the probe as per section 475 of the Criminal Procedure Code for conducting proceedings against them under the Army Act. But, assistant public prosecutor Rajendra Suryavanshi objected to transferring of investigations on the grounds that it was at a preliminary stage. Marulkar ruled that the issue will be decided at the time of filing chargesheet.

    When contacted, the defence public relations officer Sanjay Arvikar said that he had no comments to offer on the arrest of army men as he was not aware about the incident.

    Even as the Army has started a court of inquiry into the breach of discipline at Nyoma in eastern Ladakh, where officers and jawans of an artillery regiment clashed against each other, the Hinjewadi police on Sunday night arrested four rugby players of the Army Core Centre at Ahmednagar for allegedly thrashing a few villagers of Mhalunge gram panchayat over a petty dispute. The incident took place outside Balewadi sports complex hostel at Mhalunge about 7.30 pm.

    These days civilian dwellings have reached cant areas and even the officer rank likes to mingle with civilian population for obvious reasons, the exclusivity has long gone, money and other attractions play an imperative role in behavior of young officers! Discipline is the key! Disciplining YOs should be the task at hand!

    Obviously, these incidents are making headlines as Gen Singh has been on the war path against corruption, and for obvious reason the secular self-proclaimed elite media of ours perceives him a threat for their PR clients (Con-gress, middle men, political families etc); hence, malign the army and its chief!

    i didn't get you.
    but many are forgetting military people will have high level superiority and confidence as its not Easy to arrest them even in civil cases.lot of rules for arresting them.

    once in Hyderabad military people ransacked a police station for filing a case against them. even though matter went public i didn't hear about the punishment they received.


    i am not giving any kind of judgement in this issue.
    i am just telling my opinion.fault could be on any ones side.

    Sorry, but this is puerile and childish.

    We should really stop these conspiracy theories. The "media is targeting the Army" is such a silly statement - just think about it. As though the "Indian media" is one giant monolithic unit, directed by one person, who has given orders to "target" the Army. Let us not behave like Indian Pakis, with such conspiracy theories.

    I don't know the truth about this incident, no idea what exactly happened. But really, there is no need to get defensive if someone in the Army does something to be ashamed of, and it gets reported.

    The truth is, some incident involving Armymen took place - that much is true. We don't know what exactly happened, who was right and who was wrong... let us wait for subsequent news. I want these incidents to get full publicity so that in case there are any bad elements in the Army, they can be weeded out. No one in India should be immune from scrutiny.

    Well conspiracy theory are heard from media like the famous now 'two army units headed for Delhi ' etc..

    Indeed childish and immature but not from army part..




    The reason why such reports are in high light now, Incident like these before happened, serious once like:

    During 1995 two army officer`s daughters were kidnapped by some villagers in MP, Army took two truck of armed solider to release them from abductors, Ever heard about it.. ? no you don't..

    Well, the "Army units headed for Delhi" was bullshit - the Army should sue IE.

    Regarding 95' - that was not the age on instant communication, media, etc.

    In general, all I want is that rotten apples must be weeded out - whether they are in the Army or in bureaucracy or police or anywhere else.
