New Delhi: Retired Lt Gen Tejinder Singh, whose name has cropped up in media speculation as the one involved in Army chief`s allegations about bribe offer, on Monday denied the charge.

Tejinder Singh said Gen Singh had not even taken his name
and it was only media speculation that he was involved in the
latest controversy and that he was not working for any private
or defense company.

"Having retired two years ago... In the wake of these
allegations, some allegations have been made against me, who
I must humbly say that I totally deny," he said.

Tejinder Singh said he did not get into a discourse on
the matter which would only bring further disrepute to the
Army.

The former Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) chief said
he had met Gen Singh year and a half back in 2010.

Asked if there was any discussion between him and the
Army chief about any defense deal, Tejinder Singh said, "To my
understanding, Army chief has nothing to do with defense
contracts. They are all high value deals which are handled by
the Defense Ministry."

He said he was considering taking legal action against
"people concerned".
