Moments after Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat said that that exemplary punishment would be given to Major Leetul Gogoi if he was found guilty of any offence related to the controversy that erupted on May 23, Court of Inquiry (CoI) has ordered against him.

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.
We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.
We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.
The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
