Army to study Kargil ‘fake’ war verdict
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, May 27: With the Armed Forces Tribunal indicting a top officer for falsifying Kargil war reports and showing bias towards a brigadier, the Army today said it will take action on the issue after analysing the verdict.
“We have not yet received the copy of Tribunal’s judgement. Once we get it, it will be analysed and appropriate action would be taken,” a senior Army officer told PTI here.
The Principal Bench of the Tribunal, in its verdict, has held that Lt Gen (retd) Kishan Pal, former 15 Corps General Officer Commanding (GOC) showed bias against Brigadier Devinder Singh, former 70 Infantry Brigade Commander and belittled his achievements in the war besides falsifying accounts of battles during the Kargil operations.
The Tribunal has directed that the affected officer be considered for a notional promotion to the rank of a major general.
