The Indian Army Chief General V K Singh finally files an official complaint report to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday.
The complaint has been filed by the official on grounds that he was offered a bribe of 14 crore by an ex-army official who wanted him to sign off the deal of defected vehicles to be bought by the army. CBI authorities have also acknowledged the receipt of the official complaint and said that inquiry will be conducted and investigations will go on as standard protocol.
General Singh has not initially filed a formal complaint but gave a statement in media that he was bribed back in the days and he reported to the Defence Minister A K Antony, who clarified that he had urged the army chief to file an official complaint which he preferred not to due to his own reasons. A K Antony said that he could only take action on a complaint that was not officially filed. The complaint now filed by the army chief is against the former army officer retired General Tajender Singh. CBI has also asked the army chief to give a detailed account of his complaint and submit supporting documents.
On the other hand, Tajender Singh had refused to accept allegations levied on him by the army chief and has in fact filed for a defamation case against the army chief and other concerned army officials.
