Major accused of posting Lt Col's wife's phone no on adult site

September 06, 2012 20:17 IST

A senior Army officer has accused a junior of harassing his wife by posting her mobile number on an adult website prompting institution of a Court of Inquiry into the case.

Both the Lieutenant Colonel and the Major are posted at an Army Aviation Corps unit deployed at Bathinda under the 10 Corps there.

The CoI was ordered recently by the senior officials of the 10 Corps after complaints were made by a Lieutenant Colonel from the Aviation unit that the Major had posted his wife's mobile number on an adult website, sources said in New Delhi.

They said the officer also alleged that the Major made "unsolicited calls" to him and his wife.

Sources said after the mobile number was posted on the website, the wife of the Lt Col started receiving a large number of unsolicited calls from unknown people.

Army Headquarters officials confirmed the development and said the CoI was looking into the complaints of invasion in privacy by a junior officer.

Refusing to divulge any further information, they said the proceedings were still on in the probe.
