Flight Lieutenant Amitesh Harmukh was arrested on September 25 for allegedly sexually assaulting a fellow officer. The accused had been booked under Section 376 (punishment for rape) of the Indian Penal Code. Following his arrest, Amitesh sought to prevent a police investigation or a regular trial by a criminal court in the case, and instead stated in his affidavit that the case ought to be brought before a military court-martial — an internal investigation and trial system in the armed forces. Citing section 72 of the Indian Air Force Act, 1950, the accused said that the police had “no authority to arrest [him].

Even if the civil police would have arrested him, the civil police have no authority to produce him before the Judicial Magisterial Court, Coimbatore, for remand into judicial custody. Moreover, as per Indian Air Force Act, 1950, the Court Martial, instituted to try the above offence has jurisdiction.” The affidavit further adds that the police should have handed custody of Amitesh to the Air Force authorities.

  1. SSBCRACK SHAME ON YOU…..THIS IS NOT A CIVIL MATTER THAT YOU ARE POSTING IT RAPIDLY ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND HERE AND THERE….THE CASE IS NOT CLEAR…SO JUST PLEASE STOP PUTTING MUD ON THE IMAGE OF INDIAN DEFENCE FORCES,,,,,SHAME ON SSBCRACK AND YOUR TEAM WHO ARE DOING ALL THESE TYPE OF NONSENSE

    • LOL SUS, both the accused and victim are officers in Indian Air Force. Whole media is talking about this case, if this is a civil matter then ask Air Force to stop giving statements in public, like recently IAF Chief gave public statement on this case, he said no two finger test was done on Lady air force officer. So who is lying. SSB CRACK just shared the news, idiots like you are the reason our forces can never be clean, people like you are good at running from issues rather than fixing it. Hence such cases happen in Forces. PEACE and GTFO
