AFT asks defence ministry to produce original records

The Armed Forces Tribunal Wednesday asked defence ministry to produce original records relating to the navy chief’s appointment while hearing a petition by Vice Admiral Bimal Verma, who has challenged appointment of his junior Vice Admiral Karambir Singh to the top job, his lawyer said.

Verma’s lawyer Ankur Chhibber said the matter would come up for hearing on May 29, three days before current navy chief Admiral Sunil Lanba retires. The AFT is hearing the matter after the defence ministry last week rejected Verma’s statutory complaint challenging Singh’s appointment as the next chief.

“We had asked for the records to be summoned to see if fair consideration had gone into the appointment. If anything is amiss, the whole process should be set aside,” Chhibber said. Read More
