    Indian army's shame: Indictment of 4 Indian peacekeepers for 'sexual misconduct' on a UN posting in Congo dents the army's honour : North, News - India Today

    Allegations of sexual misconduct by Indian peacekeepers in Congo four years ago have been found to be true in at least one case, bringing disrepute to the Indian Army.

    Complaints about Indian troopers fathering children in Congo were forwarded by the United Nations to the army headquarters.

    A court of inquiry concluded in Meerut recently has found enough ground for disciplinary action against a jawan. It is learnt that his DNA sample matched with one of the children born to a Congolese woman.

    Three other army men, including a major, have been charged with control and command failure and administrative action has been recommended against them.

    Though the complete report of the probe is yet to be declared, its conclusion, shared by the army authorities, points to the fact that other accused officers and jawans have been given a clean chit.

    An entire battalion of the Sikh regiment was under the scanner following the startling revelations about sexual misconduct by four women. The allegations gained ground after children with distinct Indian features were delivered by the women.

    Is there an issue beyond the financial support of these children? " Indian army's shame" is a bit melodramatic, isn't it?

    True technically they were under the UN flag.
