 A firing incident at the Bathinda military station in Punjab took the lives of four Army jawans.


 The Incident

Two men in white kurta pyjamas were spotted carrying an INSAS rifle and an axe in the vicinity where the incident took place. After the firing, they were both seen running towards a forest near the barracks at around four thirty in the morning. Even though an FIR has been registered against them on Wednesday, both persons still remain unidentified.


Army Chief General Manoj Pande has informed Defence Minister Rajnath Singh about the  Bathinda Military Station firing incident. The Army’s South Western command said in a statement, “It has been ascertained that in the unfortunate incident, four Army jawans of an artillery unit succumbed to gunshot injuries sustained during the incident. No other injuries to personnel or loss/damage to property have been reported”.


Based on the deductions of the police, it is inferred that the attack could not have been from the outside, indicating the possibility of an Army soldier being behind the firing incident. In a telephonic conversation with the news agency PTI, SPS Parmar, Punjab’s Additional Director General of Police confirmed that “It is not a terrorist attack, it is not an attack from outside. It is a fratricidal incident. We are in touch with the Army authorities.”


Reaffirming the presumption, Gulneet Singh Khurana, Bathinda’s Senior Superintendent of Police, spoke to the media stating, “It is not a terror incident. It is an internal issue, it appears to be fratricidal issue. Our investigation teams have reached inside (military station) with all forensic equipment and they are conducting investigations. In-depth investigations are going on”.


The police are also investigating whether the firing incident is related to the disappearance of an INSAS rifle as well as 28 cartridges from the Military Station.
