Don`t jump to conclusion on Nanda case: Antony

Defence minister AK Antony has advised against jumping to conclusion on Lt Gen AK Nanda issue.



Lucknow: Defence minister A K Antony on Saturday
advised against jumping to conclusion on allegation of
misconduct against a top army officer as the matter was under
investigation.

"Don`t jump to the conclusion, they (Army) are
investigating," Antony told reporters when asked about
Engineer-in-Chief Lt Gen A K Nanda facing allegation of
misconduct.
The Defence minister was here to inaugurate housing
project for armymen.

Army Chief General V K Singh, who accompanied the
minister, said, "there are certain service norms and certain
things which are done, we are going through that so there is
no requirement to jump to the conclusion."

"After the things are over you will come to know," he
added.

"Whenever there is a serious allegation, we are not
ignoring it, we inquire about it and take actions," Antony
said.

59-year-old Nanda has been accused by the wife of a
junior officer of molesting her during a trip to Isreal last
month.
The Army chief said that there may be some lapses and
delay, but armed forces were the only institution that take
prompt action against people indulging into this kind of
activity.

On marriage accomodation project, the Defence minister
said it had been planned to construct two lakh cottages for
jawans and officers.

"The first phase of the project is completed," he
said.
