The infamous “swimming pool case” will no longer be a hurdle in the way of Major General Rakesh Kumar Loomba, who shot into limelight during ‘Operation Vijay’ and ‘Parakram’ against Pakistan, for his elevation as Lieutenant General.

On Monday, the Delhi High Court in a significant order cleared the decks for his promotion to the second highest post in the army by quashing a year-old censure order in connection with the case in which he was accused of constructing a swimming pool by “diverting funds” meant for a safety water tank at an ammunition depot in Hisar, Haryana.
