The Army on Friday ordered a Court of Inquiry into a scuffle that broke out between officers and jawans in Ladakh.

“The situation is under control and a Court of Inquiry has been ordered,'' Army spokesperson Colonel Jagdeep Dahiya said here.

The Defence Ministry had sought a report from the Army on the incident that took place on Thursday night.

“A minor scuffle took place between the officers and the troops of a unit on the night of 10-11 May in Ladakh. Minor injuries were suffered by the personnel,” the Army spokesperson said.

The incident reportedly took place at Nyoma, about 150 km from Leh town, following an alleged molestation involving an orderly and the reported capture of an armoury by agitated soldiers.
