Army is not likely to re­verse the de­ci­sion.

The of­fi­cer in ques­tion can chal­lenge the Army’s de­ci­sion in a civil court. Sources said the mat­ter was sen­si­tive and had se­ri­ous ram­i­fi­ca­tions. Af­ter re­view­ing the sit­u­a­tion, his ac­tions were con­sid­ered se­ri­ous in na­ture and a de­ci­sion to dis­miss him was taken at the high­est level.

The dis­missal from ser­vice was as per pro­vi­sions of ad­min­is­tra­tive ac­tion that is quicker than dis­ci­plinary ac­tion. There have been cases of of­fi­cers be­ing in­volved in il­licit re­la­tion­ships with wives of their col­leagues.
