Suicide of Jawan in Samba Unit
An enquiry has been ordered by the Army to investigate the incident of suicide by a jawan in Samba unit.

The data pertaining to complaints lodged by jawans, some of them in confidence, to their superior officers in the chain of Command, are not maintained centrally. There is, however, a well-established redressal mechanism for disposal of complaints lodged by jawans and appropriate action is taken on all such complaints.

This information was given by Defence Minister Shri AK Antony in a written reply to Shri K. N. Balagopal in Rajya Sabha today.
