Indian Army suffers 100 suicides a year
ReutersPosted online: Saturday, November 04, 2006 at 2016 hours ISTSrinagar, November 4:
At least 100 Indian soldiers are committing suicide every year and are mainly those fighting militants in Kashmir and the northeastern states, according to India's Army chief.
Dozens of soldiers, including officers, have also been killed by their colleagues in Kashmir. Early this week a soldier shot dead an officer at an army camp in Srinagar in the fourth such incident in little more than a week.
"On average we have been having about 100 suicide cases a year in the past four to five years, so this year has been the same," General J J Singh said in Srinagar on Friday.
"Mainly it (suicide) is in such (insurgency-hit) areas, but they are also happening in areas where there is no insurgency," local newspapers reported him as saying on Saturday.
