In the Sukhana Army Land Scam case, Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor has recommended administrative action against Military Secretary and other senior Generals indicted by the Court of Inquiry (CoI), said reports.
The ‘Indian Express’ reported citing sources that the Defence Ministry will initiate action according to the Army Act.
Military Secretary Lt Gen Avadesh Prakash, who was to retire from the service on January 31, was one of the eight principal staff officers (PSOs) at the Army Headquarters who act as an advisor to the Army Chief.
The Eastern Army Command chief Lt Gen VK Singh had in December 2009 recommended a summary dismissal for Prakash, said report.
Also, proceedings were recommended against Lt Gen PK Rath, whose appointment as deputy chief of army staff has been scrapped by the Defence Ministry, report said.
The proceedings of the Court Martial will also be initiated against Lt. Gen P K Rath, and Maj. Gen P C Sen, who were also allegedly indicted by the CoI report.
“Army has been always forth coming in taking action against any wrong-doing in the services and Army Chief has recommended action against Generals implicated by Court of Inquiry,” a defence ministry source was quoted as saying.
