Delhi,Crime/Disaster/Accident,Defence/Security, Tue, 27 Mar 2012 IANS

New Delhi, March 27 (IANS) The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is likely to ask Army chief Gen. V.K. Singh for a formal complaint in connection with his allegation that he was offered a bribe of Rs.14 crore to clear a "sub-standard" defence deal.


According to agency sources, any action will be taken only after getting a formal complaint from Gen. Singh.


According to the sources, the CBI has asked the army chief to submit details about the date of meeting with the lobbyist and possible witness list along with the complaint.



"Before a formal complaint is received from Singh, no case will be registered. As soon as we get a formal complaint, FIR will be registered in the case," said a CBI official.


The official informed that CBI has received a reference from the defence ministry to probe the matter and it has been processed according to the laid down procedure.


The army chief had claimed that an equipment lobbyist had offered him a bribe of Rs.14 crore in order to have a tranche of 600 sub-standard vehicles of a particular make cleared for purchase, a matter which he had reported to Defence Minister A.K. Antony.
