The CBI has decided to meet Army chief Gen VK Singh in the next couple of days to seek clarifications from him in connection with his bribery complaint against retired Lt Gen. Tejinder Singh.

“The alleged meeting between Gen. VK Singh and retired Lt Gen. Tejinder Singh didn’t last very long. According to the chief’s complaint, the retired officer was escorted out of his office within few minutes. The Gen. has provided us details of what transpired in the meeting. But to pursue to the preliminary enquiry...we need certain clarifications from the Gen.,” said an official.

Sources said, they have a complainant and an officer against whom the complaint was made. But there is no witness. Investigators want to know in what circumstance the meeting took place. Can Gen. Singh corroborate his claim with any other evidence?
