Court reserves Tejinder order
A Delhi court on Monday reserved its order for May 28 to decide whether the judicial inquiry conducted by it into the allegations levelled by Lt Gen (retd) Tejinder Singh in a criminal defamation case filed by him against army chief Gen VK Singh be continued or not.
Metropolitan magistrate Jay Thareja had been holding an inquiry for determining the existence of a criminal conspiracy and complicity among the five persons, including the army chief, in issuing the press release on March 5 in which Tejinder Singh was accused of offering a bribe of R14 crore to General VK Singh.
“Today in pursuance of the inquiry, complainant has tendered in evidence a letter of May 4, 2012 and a certificate under the Evidence Act regarding the CD (showing interview of the army chief). Put up for orders on May 28,” the court said.
