A Delhi court on Wednesday dismissed the plea of Lt Gen (retd) Tejinder Singh seeking cancellation of bail granted to former Army Chief Gen V K Singh and four top serving Army officials against whom he had filed a criminal defamation case.
Your application is dismissed with a notional cost of Rs 500 to be submitted with the Delhi Legal Services Authority, Metropolitan Magistrate Jay Thareja said,adding your application completely lacks merits as far as I am concerned.
Tejinder had filed a criminal defamation case against V K Singh,Vice Chief of Army Staff S K Singh,Lt Gen B S Thakur (Director General of Military Intelligence),Major General S L Narshiman (Additional Director General of Public Information) and Col Hitten Sawhney.
He had alleged he was defamed by the Army through its press release on March 5 which accused him of offering a bribe of Rs 14 crore to then Army Chief to clear a deal of 600 trucks,a charge refuted by him.
Tejinder had sought cancellation of bail saying the accused are likely to tamper with the evidence.
