New Delhi, May 14 (IANS) Another sex scandal has hit the Indian Navy with the wife of an officer alleging her husband tortured her mentally and physically and forced her to sleep with his colleagues.
According to a source, the father of the woman has written to the navy and the defence ministry last month with the complaint. The navy has ordered a probe against the husband, a lieutenant commander, the source told IANS.
The officer is posted at the Naval Ship Repair Yard at Karwar in Karnataka.
His wife has left her husband’s home. They had married in February 2012 and have filed for divorce with mutual consent, the source added.
The navy has been hit by a string of sex scandals of late.
In early April, the wife of an officer had alleged that wife-swapping was prevalent in the navy and that she had been molested by her husband’s superiors.
Last month, a naval commander was dismissed for sending lewd texts to women and in another case an officer was dismissed for entering into an illicit relationship with the wife of a superior.
