Armed forces must have mechanism for disciplinary proceedings against officers for adultery: SC

New Delhi, 29/9: The Supreme Court on Thursday said the armed forces should have disciplinary proceedings against their officers for adultery, saying it creates pain in the family



Maintaining that family is the unit of society and everybody is dependent on it, a five-judge bench presided over by Justice K M Joseph said adultery can shake the discipline in the armed forces, which is of paramount importance.


“This conduct can shake up the life of the officers,” the bench, also comprising Justices Ajay Rastogi, Aniruddha Bose, Hrishikesh Roy, and C T Ravikumar, said.
