Army said that the jawan accused in the molestation case would have to face the action very soon. In a statement, army said that the inquiry into the allegations of molestation of a girl was complete. According to army, unlike the normal court process, in the Army a court is formed to try a particular case to ensure speedy justice as we believe that justice delayed in justice denied.
The Army's Dah Division in an letter to the All Tai Ahom Students' Union (ATASU) and a women organisation Mahila Samiti, said the Army took over the case from the civil court to ensure speedy justice for the victim.
