A senior Sikh woman soldier with 21 years of exemplary service in the British Army has filed a sexual and racial discrimination case against a brigadier, three colonels and the Ministry of Defence in an Employment Tribunal.

Forty-year-old Warrant Officer Jinder Moore has alleged that she received e-mails coupled with verbal abuse from seniors commenting on her pregnancy and maternity leave.

Moore, the mother of four, claimed that the e-mails commented about how quickly she got pregnant when she returned to work after a second period of maternity leave, The Times daily reported on Friday.

She claimed that e-mails and verbal abuse amounted to racial and sexual discrimination, it said.

The tribunal is expected to be told that the Warrant Officer's career was stalled after she began to complain about the treatment she was receiving from senior officers.
