General VK Singh is likely to give all details of his meeting with retired Lieutenant General Tejinder Singh by Monday. General Singh has alleged that the retired officer met and offered him bribe to clear a tranche of 600 heavy duty Tatra trucks for the army almost one and half years ago. The CBI has not been able to start its probe into the allegation in the absence of details.
The General first made this claim in an interview and later in a formal communication to CBI. In the interview he had specified the bribe amount as Rs 14 crore but chose to remain silent on the amount in his communication to the CBI.
“We will have to probe the matter thoroughly as the General has already given the name of the officer ... But without of details such as the circumstance leading to the meeting, the conversation etc we cannot proceed further in the matter,” said a CBI source.
