New Delhi: Correcting its earlier attempt to downplay the serious clash between officers and jawans in Nyoma in Ladakh, the Army has submitted a revised report to the Defence Ministry bringing out its details.

The Army had initially submitted a brief report in which it had dismissed the incident as a "minor scuffle" and the injuries suffered as "superficial".

With the media reporting the entire incident in detail with some sections even calling it a mutiny, Defence Minister AK Antony had asked the army to provide complete details.

The fresh report, submitted by the army two days ago, is being looked into by officials concerned, Defence Ministry sources said here.

The Army is already carrying out a Court of Inquiry (CoI) into the incident and has "attached" the Commanding Officer of the 226 Field Regiment and other officers involved and jawans with it.
In the incident on May 10, after a major beat up a sahayak and did not allow him to be treated, there was resentment among other jawans.
