An Army court on Monday ordered disciplinary action against Major Leetul Gogoi who was detained by police in a Srinagar hotel after he was seen with a local woman in May.

A court of inquiry has found him accountable on two charges. Sources say that Major Leetul Gogoi is likely to face Court martial.

On May 23, Major Gogoi was detained by police following an altercation at the hotel in Srinagar where he was allegedly trying to enter with a woman.

Days later, the Army had ordered a Court of inquiry into the incident. Army chief Gen Bipin Rawat also had assured of exemplary punishment against Major Gogoi if found to be guilty.

The Army authorities are likely to examine the legal aspects of the case before taking a final call on future course of action.

Earlier, Major Gogoi had hit the headlines in 2017 after he tied a man to a jeep in Kashmir purportedly as a shield against stone-pelters during polling for the Srinagar Lok Sabha by-election on April 9.
