Pune: A day after a group of Army jawans
clashed with police following an altercation over traffic
violation, the Army on Wednesday said no case of indiscipline will be
tolerated and strict action will be taken against those
involved.

High drama was witnessed in a busy square here last night
when a traffic cop stopped two jawans of College of Military
Engineering (CME) for entering a "no entry" zone.

Enraged over the traffic constable`s action, a group of
CME jawans allegedly vandalised a chowki in the Sambhaji
bridge area and assaulted policemen including two women
constables as well as some cameramen who tried to take
pictures.

A Southern Command spokesman today said, "Authorities
will not tolerate any case of indiscipline and strict action
will be taken against those found involved."

"Normal procedure will be followed before taking any
action in the matter," he said.

Top officers of CME and military police had rushed to the
spot last night to bring the situation under control after an
hour long trouble at the arterial road that created tension in
the area.
