A GURKHA under investigation for beheading a Taliban gunman has been allowed back on normal duty.
The Nepalese soldier faced court martial after he returned to base with the enemy fighter’s head in a bag and presented it to senior officers.
He had decapitated the insurgent with his kukri machete, the traditional Gurkha weapon, during fierce fighting on the Afghan front line.
I was under the impression that killing the enemy was kind of the point of the exercise.
