New Delhi, April 10 (IANS) Lt Gen (retd) Tejinder Singh Tuesday Tuesday told a Delhi court, hearing his defamation case against army chief Gen. V.K. Singh, that the allegation that he had offered a bribe to Vectra, the company which makes the Tatra vehicles used by the army, was 'absolutely false'.
'The allegation of offering bribe to Tatra and Vectra Private Limited is absolutely false and ill founded and I denied the same,' Tejinder Singh told the court as Metropolitan Magistrate Sudesh Kumar listed the matter for an order on summoning the army chief to April 21.
Tejinder Singh, who retired in 2010 from the post of director general of Defence Intelligence Agency, asked the court to summon and initiate proceedings against the army chief and others for making the libellous statement in media.
Sending shockwaves through the defence establishment, the army chief disclosed in media that he was offered a kickback of Rs.14 crore by a retired defence officer in exchange for clearing a tranche of 600 sub-standard vehicles and he had immediately informed Defence Minister A.K. Antony about it.
