Kochi: The Southern Naval Command has said that a marital discord between a serving lieutenant and his wife led to the officer`s wife registering a police complaint against some Navy officials.

An Indian Navy spokesperson in a statement said that the wife of a lieutenant had "levelled unfair allegations against superior officers in her husband`s chain of command, their spouses and other officers".

He said that the officers and their wives had "unsuccessfully tried to resolve the couple`s personal life".

The statement added that the Southern Naval Command would cooperate in the investigation into the allegations.

The lieutenant has approached the Kerala High Court, seeking anticipatory bail.
