A Delhi court hearing the criminal defamation complaint against Army Chief Gen V K Singh and four others today transferred it to the court of additional chief metropolitan magistrate (ACMM).


Metropolitan Magistrate (MM) Sudesh Kumar, who was to pass an order today on the plea of former Lieutenant General Tejinder Singh, transferred the matter for further proceedings to ACMM Amit Bansal saying the counsel for the complainant appears to have "lost confidence over the courts of law".

The matter would now be placed before ACMM Bansal on May 7.

The metropolitan magistrate was to pass his order on Tejinder Singh's plea for summoning General V K Singh and four others as accused in the defamation case.

Besides the Army chief, he has named Vice Chief of Army Staff S K Singh, Lt Gen B S Thakur (DG MI), Major General S L Narshiman (Additional Director General of Public Information) and Lt Col Hitten Sawhney, accusing them of misusing their official positions, power and authority to level false charges against him.
