Tribunal comes to the aid of missing soldier's widow

 Slamming the Army for not taking care of the family of a soldier who has been missing for the last 22 years, the Armed Forces Tribunal today asked it to grant pension to the wife of the jawan after holding an inquiry to ascertain whether he was dead.

In her petition, the missing soldier's wife Koyal Devi had urged the Tribunal to ask the Army to hold a fresh Court of Inquiry (CoI) for considering the status of her husband and decide on her appeal for getting family pension and gratuity.

In its reply, the Army said the jawan was declared a deserter and as per Army rules, a CoI was held after completion of period of more than 10 years from the date of desertion, in which he was dismissed from service.
