Bribe case: CBI carries out raids, registers case against Tejinder Singh

New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Saturday raided seven places in the country in connection with the former army chief General VK Singh bribery case. The raids are still on, reports said. An FIR was registered against Lt Gen Tejinder Singh under prevention of corruption act.

Gen VK Singh had disclosed in a press release that he was offered a kickback of Rs 14 crore by a retired defence officer in exchange for clearing a tranche of 600 all-terrain Tatra trucks for the army, which he described as sub-standard.

Denying all the allegations, Tejinder Singh had said that in the press release that the army headquarters publicly accused him and a group of serving officers of the military intelligence of conspiring to create a rift between the army chief and the government.
