Tehelka scam: Colonel’s court martial begins at Chandimandir
HT Chandigarh, April 8, no archives
Man Aman Singh Chhina
Chandigarh, April 7

THE ARMY has begun the General Courts Martial (GCM) of Col Anil Sehgal, one of the officers allegedly caught accepting bribe on camera from undercover journalists in the Tehelka scam in March 2001.

The GCM of Col Sehgal is being conducted in Chandimandir military station near here. Station Commander Brig Kuldeep Singh is the presiding officer of the GCM, which is being held in the location of an Air Defence Regiment.

The Commanding Officer of the Air Defence Regiment and that of an Engineer Regiment are amongst the members of the GCM, which also includes two more officers of the rank of Colonel. An officer of the Judge Advocate Generals branch of the Army is assisting the members of the court in the trial.

Col Sehgal belongs to the Corps of Ordnance and was serving in the Directorate General of Ordnance and Supply in the Army Headquarters when he was allegedly caught on video demanding bribe. He, along with Maj Gen P.S.K. Choudhary, then Additional Director General, Weapons and Equipment; Brig Iqbal Singh, Prospective Procurement Officer; Maj Gen Manjit Singh Ahluwalia, Additional Director General Ordnance and Supply, and Maj Gen Satnam Singh were indicted by an Court of Inquiry held by the Army into the allegations of corruption against them.

Col Sehgal is the first officer embroiled in the Tehelka scam to face a court martial. Highly-placed sources inform that the GCM of Major General P.S.K. Choudhary will also be held in or around Chandimandir and it will be presided over by Lt Gen P.K. Grover, Chief of Staff, Western Command.

Col Sehgal faces charges of acts prejudicial to good order and military discipline. He had appealed in the Delhi High Court that his GCM was time-barred because a period of three years had elapsed since the commission of the alleged offence.

Under Section 122 of the Army Act, no trial by court martial of any person subject to the Act shall commence after the expiry of a period of three years from the date of the offence. The government has contended that while the Tehelka tapes were broadcast on March 13, 2001, it came to officially know about it when the inquiry report was submitted on June 14, 2001. Hence, three years have not elapsed. The HC refused to stay the trial and the case has been adjourned to May 18.
