SC ticks off Navy for sacking officer

The Supreme Court today deprecated its decision to discharge from service a commander for interacting and exchanging explicit messages and photographs with a foreign lady, wife of another officer, on the pretext of allegedly passing sensitive information.

"Certainly it shocks our conscience that an officer should be thrown out like this," a bench headed by Chief Justice H L Dattu said while dismissing the appeal filed by the Centre against the decision of the Armed Forces Tribunal setting aside the sacking of commander Kalyan Kumar.

"Tribunal seems to be justified with its order," the bench, also comprising Justices S J Mukhopadhya and A K Mishra said while not accepting the arguments of Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi that action of the officer indulging with a foreign lady by exchanging explicit materials was unbecoming of an officer.
