The CPI-M on Friday demanded a thorough probe into reports of penetration of “Hindutva elements” into the army, and said the recent arrests of retired and serving officers raised questions about the sanctity of the armed forces.

“There has been a sanctity about the armed forces.. Now that is clearly breaking down. So there is a requirement for immediate correction,” senior party leader Sitaram Yechury said. “The Malegaon blast investigation has revealed the involvement of extreme Hindutva organisations. The role of retired army officers and the case against a serving officer have disturbing implications for national security,” he said.
