Retired Lt Gen denies allegations of involvement in army chief bribery charge

New Delhi, Mon, 26 Mar 2012 ANI

New Delhi, Mar.26 (ANI): Retired Lieutenant General Tejinder Singh, whose name is doing the rounds as the man responsible for offering a bribe to Army Chief General V.K. Singh denied the charge on Monday.

Lt. Gen. Tejinder Singh said General Singh had not even taken his name and it was only media speculation that he was involved in the latest controversy and that he was not working for any private or defence company.

"Having retired two years ago, in the wake of these allegations, some allegations have been made against me, which I must humbly say that I totally deny," he said.

Singh said he was not interested in bringing the army into further disrepute.

The former Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) chief said he had met General Singh in 2010.

Asked if there was any discussion between him and the Army chief about any defence deal, Tejinder Singh said, "To my understanding, the Army Chief has nothing to do with defence contracts. They are all high value deals which are handled by the Defence Ministry."

He said he was considering taking legal action against "people concerned".

"The army chief has not named me, so I should not be talking about it. Allegations against me are baseless. I don't want to get into any controversy by speaking out anything on the issue. I don't want to tarnish the image of the army," Tejinder Singh, who retired as a lieutenant general. (ANI)
