Hyderabad: Army officer’s wife files harassment complaint against jawan


Hyderabad: An Army official’s wife has lodged a complaint with Defence Minister Rajnath Singh stating that an Army jawan in Secunderabad intimidated her and passed lewd comments at her.

The woman is staying with her five-year-old son and other family members at the Army quarters in Secunderabad with her husband being presently posted in North India.

When she brought the matter to the notice of She Teams here, another Army officer allegedly sent away the She Team members stating that the matter would be resolved and asked them not to get involved in it.

However, jawan continued harassing her, the woman said and adding that he shouted at her son and intimidated him while he was playing near the house.

Since then the child was afraid to go out of the house. In spite of bringing the matter to the notice of officials concerned here, nothing concrete had been done, she said in the complaint.

“We are living in pain due to these incidents. As a last option, we are representing the matter to the Defence Ministry,” the woman said.

Sources said Ministry officials had asked the woman to approach the local police for taking necessary action against the jawan.
