Army officers held for clearing substandard equipment

 INDIAN EXPRESS



I WONDER : LEAST TO SAY..... WHY THESE ARMY OFFICERS DON'T HAVE RANKS ????

Three Army officers were arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation-Anti Corruption Bureau (CBI-ACB) on Wednesday for facilitating the supply of substandard non-skid chains to the Army worth Rs 1.58 crore in 2006.

Jaywantrao Yadavrao Pawar, A Prabhakaran and Fayazoddin were produced before the district court where they were remanded to police custody for two days. Pawar is the deputy director general (administration), directorate general of quality assurance, Ministry of Defence in New Delhi, Prabhakaran is joint controller of quality assurance, heavy vehicles in Chennai and Fayazoddin retired as group officer, vehicle quality assurance wing in Pune.

Subash Chandra Gupta, additional superintendent of police, CBI-ACB said, “In December 2007, the CBI registered a case against five accused including Pawar, the then officiating controller of quality assurance, Ahmednagar on allegations of supply of substandard non-skid chains by Sunil Sharma, co-accused in the case, to the Indian army. Anti-skid chains are used in Army vehicles in snow-bound high altitude areas and are a critical item for operational purposes. Any failure in performance of these chains may result in loss of human life and equipment belonging to the Army.”
