60 secs Minimum - 8 mins Maximum Read
A month after the alleged suicide of Lance Naik Roy Mathew following

the release of a sting video on the news website The Quint, in which

he had spoken on the "sahayak" system in the Indian Army, Nashik

police Monday booked journalist Poonam Aggarwal under sections of the

Official Secrets Act and those relating to criminal trespass and

abetment to suicide under the Indian Penal Code.



Official sources said a case was registered after the Army submitted

an application to Nashik police, complaining against the journalist

for illegally entering a prohibited area.



The Army also accused the journalist of posing 'leading questions' to

Mathew while carrying out the sting operation. The Army asked the

police to treat the application as its complaint.
