At least two Indian Army officers and a soldier were injured in a violent clash that occurred during a boxing match here late Thursday and have been admitted to the Command Hospital, an officer said, adding that a probe had been ordered into the fracas.

A lieutenant colonel of a Sikh Light Infantry batallion and another officer, whose rank and regiment could not be immediately ascertained, were admitted to hospital after a group of officers and soldiers were engaged in a verbal spat that deteriorated into fisticuffs, the officer said.

He said that junior commissioned officers (JCOs) and soldiers ganged up to take on senior officers, adding that the matter was "very serious" and the probe would identify the guilty. 

"Nobody will go unpunished. Such acts cannot be tolerated in a highly disciplined environment," the officer said.
