VK Singh fails to appear before JK panel

Singh failed to appear before the Privileges Committee to explain his position on his allegations that politicians in the state were paid by the Army, prompting the panel to issue a summons to him through the Haryana DGP.

However, an aide of Singh claimed that he had written to the Privileges Committee, which did not accept his reply and asked him to appear before it in person.

‘The Committee, under the chairmanship of Jugal Kishore Sharma, has decided to issue summons to him (Singh) through the Haryana Director General of Police to appear before this Committee on 22nd of this month at 2:30 PM,’ member of the privilege committee, Devender Singh Rana told reporters after the conclusion of the meeting here.

Rana, who is a ruling National Conference MLC and Chief Minister Omar Abdullah’s confidante, said ‘failing this, necessary action under law which is available to us will be taken against him.’

Col U B Singh, a friend of Gen Singh, however, told reporters at the Legislative Council, ‘Singh had sent a proper reply to the Privilege Committee. But they have not taken it into consideration and refused to accept it.’
