Darjeeling Land Scam :Veteran Prabhjot Singh PLS Retd.

Darjeeling Land Scam.
Have been singled out, alleges Lt Gen Rath
New Delhi, February 13. Lt Gen PK Rath, who is facing court

martial in the Sukna land scam case, has alleged in the
Delhi High Court that there was “mala fide” intention as the
Eastern Command hadinitiated action against him only
after he was designated the Deputy Chief of Army.
In his petition before the High Court here, Rath has contended

that he had been “singled out” in the case and the “offence”
against him had been “prejudged”.
The Eastern Command, headed by Army Chief-designate

Lt GenVK Singh, had initiated the Court of Inquiry against
him much after the Cabinet Committee of Appointments had
approved his elevation as Deputy Chief of Army Staff, Rath
said in his 24-page
petition filed on Thursday.He contended that the order to
attach him to the Kolkata-based headquarters, just before he
could take over as Deputy Chief of Army, was “highly
discriminatory, arbitrary and non-speaking order, hence bad
in law”. Casting aspersions on the role of Lt-Gen VK Singh, he
said, “The attachment order has been passed with a malafide
intention to stop the petitioner from joining the post as Deputy
Chief of Army Staff.”
Rath, along with former Military Secretary Lt-Gen Avadesh

Prakash, is facing court martial in the case that relates to
no-objection certificate given by the Army to a private
realtor to construct an educational institution over a
71-acre plot adjacent to Sukna military base in Darjeeling.
Rath said he had informed Lt Gen Singh within 15 days

about the memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed
in April lastyear with a private realtor and on the orders
of Lt-Gen Singh he also got the MOU cancelled.
“It is only after six months of cancellation of the MOU,

when the petitioner was transferred to post of Deputy
Chief of ArmyStaff, that the Eastern Command Headquarters
initiated the proceedings only to deny the petitioner from
being posted to the above post,” he said.— PTI
