NEW DELHI: Defense Minister A K Antony today ordered the immediate transfer of NDA Commandant Lt Gen Jatinder Singh to ensure a fair investigation into the alleged recruitment scam in the prestigious training academy in Pune.

“This shifting is with a view to ensuring a free and fair investigation in the alleged bribery racket in the recruitment of Group ‘C’ posts in the NDA, Khadakwasla, Pune,” Defense Ministry spokesperson N Aao said here.

The Minister took the action after several employees of the academy including the staff officer of Lt Gen Singh were arrested by CBI for allegedly taking bribes. (More) PTI AJDCBI had arrested Lt Gen Jatinder Singh’s Staff Officer Colonel Kulbir Singh along with five others for allegedly receiving bribe from candidates during a recruitment drive at NDA last month.

The Defense Ministry has taken serious exception to the fact that the Staff Officer of the NDA Commandant was allegedly involved in the recruitment scam.

The in-charge of tri-services training academies including NDA – Integrated Defense Staff Chief Vice Admiral Shekhar Sinha – had also met the Defense Minister over the issue.

Establishment Officer of NDA Suhas Shankar Waghmare was also arrested by CBI last week over allegations that he had taken money from over 15 candidates in the alleged recruitment scam.

CBI has alleged that Col Singh in conspiracy with the other accused had obtained illegal gratification of Rs 3 lakh to Rs 4 lakh from each candidate to give them appointment for subordinate staff like cooks, gardeners, lab attendants, library attendants and cadet orderlies.

The accused persons had allegedly taken signatures of those candidates, who had agreed to pay bribe, on blank sheets and later filled them with correct answers, it said.
