Antony orders probe into Darjeeling ‘land fraud’

New Delhi: Defence Minister A.K. Anton’y on Thursday ordered a probe into an alleged land fraud at a military station in Darjeeling in which at least two Generals are said to be involved.

Senior army officers involved

Mr. Antony issued the orders to Defence Secretary Pradeep Kumar, taking note of reports that senior Army officers were involved in the fraud committed by a private institution, officials said.

The Army has already instituted a court of inquiry into the allegations that the Generals and other senior officers had issued a no-objection certificate (NOC) to the institution that bought the land adjacent to the Sukhna military station a few years ago, on the pretext of starting a branch of the Mayo College there.

At the earliest

The ministry probe, a report of which Mr. Antony wanted as soon as possible, would be independent of the Army inquiry, the officials said. — PTI
