Commandant of Soroca Frontier Guard Summoned to Bucharest with Two of His Soldiers

Captain Gaja, the Commandant of the frontier guard detachment at Soroca has been summoned to Bucharest, says a Soroca report received here, suggesting that the authorities intend to probe the charge made against him that he fired his rifle when the party of five young Jews and one non-Jew was shot dead on the night of January 9th. Two of the soldiers in his frontier guard detachment have been ordered to proceed to Bucharest with him. In Jewish quarters in Soroca it is believed that Captain Gaja will not return to his post. The report cannot, however, be confirmed.
