‘104 Armymen punished for HR violations in JK’

New Delhi: Rejecting charges that the Army was not taking action in cases of human rights violations by its personnel, Army Chief Gen V K Singh has disclosed that 39 officers were among 104 armymen who had been punished in Jammu and Kashmir in this regard.

He said over 95 per cent of the allegations of human rights violations proved to be false and had apparently been levelled with the “ulterior motive of maligning the armed forces”.

Gen Singh, whose force is time and again accused of fake encounters and other human rights violations, made it clear in an interview to PTI that he would not tolerate any “bad eggs” in the Army and tough action is taken against erring personnel.
