Indian Army Calls Out Misleading News Report Headline, ‘Times Of India’ Apologises And Retracts


The Times of India today published a news article titled ‘How suspended army man pulled off burglaries’. It was about a series of burglaries reported in Delhi in recent weeks. The arrested culprit Dharambir was a previous civilian employee at Military Engineering Services, but TOI reported him as ‘rogue army man’.

The social media handle of the Indian Army which is named for the Additional Directorate General of Public Information ( @adgpi) called out the misleading headline in a tweet.

The army social media handle pointed out that the arrested suspect Dharambir (54) was a civilian previously working with the MES and he was suspended. He was arrested on Tuesday after a number of burglaries in the Delhi Cantonment area. Two other persons named Deepak alias Prasanjeet and Dheeraj were arrested with him after being intercepted by police in the Dwarka sector 1 area. The TOI report also added that they were inside a Hyundai car with Haryana number plate. They were allegedly taking the stolen goods to their hideout. Read More…
