The Army on Friday said that it is inquiring into allegation made by a lieutenant colonel against his junior officer of harassing his wife by posting her mobile number on an adult website.


It, however, denied reports which suggested that the major has posted pictures and videos of the Lt Col's wife on 19 websites.

"No allegations for posting of videos and pictures have been made. The only allegation is that of posting of the mobile number of the Lt Col's wife by the major on one website and we are carrying a Court of Inquiry (CoI) into that incident," Army spokesperson colonel Jagdeep Dahiya said here.

The CoI was ordered recently by 10 Corps under Lt Gen Sanjeev Anand after complaints were made by the Lt Col from the aviation unit that the major had posted his wife's mobile number on an adult website.

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