Army land scam probe: Military Secy to be questioned

One of the ten seniormost Generals of the Army has been summoned to Kolkata for questioning in a land scam case that is turning out to be one of the biggest probes involving senior officers.

Lt Gen Avadhesh Prakash, who is Military Secretary at Army Headquarters, has been called for questioning in the Darjeeling land scam case. Two Lt Generals, P K Rath and Ramesh Halgali who were both Corps commanders, have already been attached to the Kolkata-based Eastern Command in the same case.

Lt Gen Prakash, one of the seven Principal Staff Officers at Army HQ, is so far the seniormost officer called for questioning in the case where NOCs (no-objection certificates) were allegedly granted for transfer of 70 acres of land to an educational institution that posed as an affiliate of Ajmer’s Mayo College.

Sources said the officer has been called after his name came up in statements given by officers who are currently being probed. The inquiry is looking into allegations that Lt Gen Prakash recommended the Dilip Agarwal Geetanjali Educational Trust that wanted to set up a school on the piece of land near the 33 Corps HQ is Sukna.

The inquiry is probing allegations that his name appeared as the Managing Director in brochures taken out by the educational institution.

Army officials said that while several officers have been called for questioning, it does not mean that they are guilty. “The court of inquiry has been ordered to probe allegations of wrongdoing but it does not mean that all officers who have been called are guilty. If any evidence is found, suitable action will be taken,” an Army official said.

As first reported by The Indian Express, the Army ordered a Court of Inquiry last month into the dubious land deal after it came to light that NOCs were granted against the norms and Mayo College clarified that it had nothing to do with the educational institution.
