The Supreme Court today dismissed a PIL challenging Army chief designate Lt General Bikram Singh's appointment as the next Army chief.

The petition filed by former Naval chief Admiral Laxminarayan Ramdas and others had challenged the selection of Gen Bikram Singh as the next chief of Army staff on the grounds that he is facing allegations of involvement in a fake encounter in Jammu and Kashmir.

Lt Gen Bikram Singh is due to take over from present Army chief General VK Singh who will retire on May 31.
