An Army officer said that following the jawan's death, his colleagues, who were being consoled by their adjuant (the Captain) got emotional. Agitated, the jawans got into a scuffle with their Captain.

"The jawan complained of chest pain prior to a route march and was checked by the unit medical officer who found him fit. He later collapsed during the march. He was rushed to the field ambulance where he died," the officer said.

ANI tweeted that,

The officer further said that the incident is being investigated like all cases of death during training.

Even as the Indian Army denied that there was any case of mutiny in the infantry unit, it confirmed that an officer was injured following the scuffle.

The incident is being investigated.
