“Steal­ing the af­fec­tions of a brother of­fi­cer’s wife” is con­sid­ered a grave of­fence in the armed forces that can lead to dis­missal. Such cases usu­ally end up in civil courts af­ter the Gen­eral Court Mar­tial pro­ceed­ings.

There have been in­stances where courts have re­in­stated of­fi­cers dis­missed for be­ing in­volved in ex­tra-mar­i­tal af­fairs.

“Such a case where an of­fi­cer is in­volved with a col­league’s daugh­ter is rare,” sources said.

The Army was tightlipped and did not of­fi­cially com­ment on the de­ci­sion of sack­ing of the Lt Colonel.
