serving soldier ARUN was shot dead himself !!

Arun a serving soldier, of the 16th infantry, who hails from “kilimanoor” Kerala was shot dead in his military camp – Many versions of that was reported by media –
He committed suicide by shooting himself
He was shot dead
The prime minister’s response to the issue was that, media is over sensationalizing the issue !
The main dubious aspects of the whole incident are -
He was a smart soldier who cleared the preliminaries of National Defense Academy exam. Awaiting his final appearance -
He did not have any domestic or personal problems – !!
His mother said that he telephoned the previous day before he was shot and told his family that he had threats to his life from the authorities !
We the public wants an independent enquiry by an outside agency to find out the reasons instigated him to do this – and the findings also to be made transparent – Or else it will affect
The image of our defense forces – it’s credibility and rapport !!


  1. My condolence
    What else is there to say

    1. Thank you for your comment - let us hope
      this type of incident may not happen again

  2. There was some solid reason behind this tragic incident. The department should find out the reason behind, as said he was an able Jawan who should not have taken this step, it definitely shows some pressure from the higher ups in the Army? as said an independent enquiry only will bring out the truth.
    Our deepest condolences to the bereaved family members.

    1. let us hope that the seriousness of this may not
      fade away with the vested interest of the establishment !!

  3. No words to say…..The common people like me don’t know the inside stories of a defence force .but we want an independent enquiry about this, because he was not a common citizen, he was a soldier .
    My condolences to his family..

  4. Thank you Deepu for your valid comment
