Western Command has ordered Court of Inquiry into the death of Commandant of Western Command Military Dental Centre, major general Sanjeev Harbans Gupta, who was cremated on Monday at Sector-25 cremation ground with full military honours.

Gupta had died on Sunday morning at the golf park of Chandimandir Military Station after his golf cart wobbled while crossing a bridge, due to which he fell into a drain. Gupta was rushed to Command Hospital, Chandimandir, where he succumbed to head and spinal injuries.

A senior officer at Western Command said that there was no railing on the bridge. He added that a Court of Inquiry is underway on the death of the officer and truth will come out, after which any safety measure, if required, will be taken.

However, Panchkula police have denied any foul play in the official’s death. His family has not filed any complaint in the matter as of now.

Born on March 13, 1959, Gupta, who hailed from Gurdaspur, was commissioned into the Army Dental Corps in September 1981. A senior dental officer with a distinguished professional repute, he had an outstanding career having performed with great distinction in all courses and appointments held by him, according to the Western Command.
