An Indian soldier who used tomato ketchup to fake his claim for a bravery medal has been dismissed from service.
Colonel H.S. Kohli, who commanded an artillery regiment in Assam, tried to present photographs of civilians splashed with ketchup as ‘enemy casualties’.
But the fraud came to light while authorities were processing his claims for an award.
The army officer was tried and found guilty in a court martial while a major who connived with him in the fake encounter, faces a five-year suspension.
How pathetic, lol…
