The Army today said the recording of Summary of Evidence (S of E) into the Rathupaswala incident was still being carried out ahead of the Court of Inquiry (C of I) completion.

In a statement, they said the Magisterial Inquiry regarding the incident had been fixed for hearing on November 6 this year.  

“In consequence of the incident on August 1, 2013, an Army C of I was appointed to investigate the matter in accordance with military provisions.  A Magisterial Inquiry and Police investigation had also been in progress at the time of appointing the C of I,” the statement said.  

Upon the completion of the C of I recording of Summary of Evidence against some Army personnel had commenced and it is presently in progress.

The Commander of the Army, after perusing Summary of Evidence findings, may convene General Courts Martial if the evidence discloses prima facie cases against Army personnel implicated. (Lahiru Pothmulla)
