The jawans also “indulged in agitated behaviour leading to a minor scuffle”, the PRO said, adding that no one sustained serious injuries. “The incident is being investigated as is the practice in all cases of death during training,” he said.

      This is not True. The army is not run by Brahmins or Rajputs but by professionalism and;br/gt;Route march, PT drill, Training in High alude or in 50 degree plus temperature is a must for physical and mental fitness of solier (Jawan or officer). It's not that Officer takes rest and only Jawans do these trainings!. The casulty rate of Officers is highest in Indian army as compare to any other army in the world. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;I see this incident as gross indiscipline, not sure of the reasons but command and control failed miserably. All responsible should get exmpelary punishment for this indiscipline including dibanding this battalion!

        The doctorate advice and the armed forces procedures for conduct of general army training for para-military forces seen as the best procedures.The army personnel heart failure did not interfere with other officers shown great respect for the conduct of training and discipline shows great respect to the country.

          All such battalions should be disbanded for gross indiscipline!. Indiscipline is not sudden occurence but setting slowly day by day.

          See in Wikipedia the caste of all Chief of Army Staff. All are brahmins or Parsis. Remember Parsis are brothers of brahmins.

              There is always every possibility to avoid Parade,one reports as sick to a Medical Officer who in turn accepts he/she is sick or otherwise.Therefore one should not blame Medical Officer.It is very difficult for MO to find any Jawan sick or otherwise unless he has a fever,giddiness in other cases it is difficult to point sickness.However proper investigation will tell what happen.It is now all guess work of Print Media.
