The Central Bureau of Investigation is likely to take a decision on further action over the army chief's complaint on the alleged bribe offer made by retired lieutenant general Tejinder Singh almost one and half year ago.
Army chief General VK Singh on Tuesday sent a lieutenant colonel to the CBI headquarter with details on the alleged bribe offer. According to sources, the general has provided some supporting documents to buttress his claim of the bribe offer.
"But the supporting documents do not contain any audio or video compact disc," clarified a source.
The general has requested confidentiality from the CBI officials while dealing with his complaint.
"We are examining the details to see what evidentiary value it holds. By Wednesday we will take a call on the issue of holding a preliminary enquiry on the basis of it or straightaway registering an FIR in the matter," said an official of the agency.
The alleged bribe offer was made public by Gen Singh in an interview. The general had alleged that he was offered Rs 14 crore to clear a tranche of 600 all terrain Tatra trucks.
