The officer, who was of the rank of ‘Major’, and the jawan both belong to the Rashtriya Rifles armoured corps. The incident is being called a case of fratricide, which means the killing of a fellow soldier or superior.
More details about the incident are awaited.
In March, replying to a question in the Lok Sabha, minister of state for defence Subhash Bhamre said there were three cases of fratricide reported from the three defence services last year.
