New Delhi: CRPF jawans allegedly beat up their company commander after a colleague died due to illness in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag district.

According to PTI, Khupmani Misall of 28 Battalion CRPF, posted at Qaimoh, was taken ill on Saturday night and died in the CRPF Unit hospital at Anantnag.

His death angered his colleagues who allegedly thrashed their company commander for not allowing Misall to be taken to the nearest health facility which caused delay in timely medical attention to him, the official said.

He said they have not received any complaint from the CRPF in this regard so far. Inquest proceedings have been initiated to ascertain the jawan's cause of death.

A CRPF spokesman said an inquiry has been ordered into the entire incident including the alleged thrashing of the company commander by his subordinates.

"Once the inquiry is completed, action, as warranted under rules, will be taken," he added.

The incident comes close on the heels of Army men allegedly thrashing and injuring seven police personnel at Gund in Sonamarg and ransacking the police station also.

While the Army has downplayed the incident as a minor altercation, the state police has asked the Army to take action against the erring soldiers.
