‘Govt to take action on Army Chief`s letter leak’
New Delhi: The government will take action
against those responsible for the leak of Army Chief VK
Singh`s Letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh after it
receives the probe report from the Intelligence Bureau.
"The leak is being probed. The Ministry of Defence has
asked for a report. IB will submit the report to Ministry of
Defence. When the report is submitted, the Ministry of Defence
will take action," Home Minister P Chidambaram told reporters
He was responding to questions whether the IB probe into
the leak of the letter is completed and if so what is the
"I read about the leak in one of the newspapers. I read
about the clean chit (reportedly given to Army chief) in one
of the newspapers. What I should have to say unless the IB
gives a report to Ministry of Defence. When the IB submits the
report, then we will know how the letter was leaked," he said.
When reminded that IB functions under the Home Ministry
and hence he may be privy to the probe report, Chidambaram
said "it (report) may go through the corridors of the Home
Ministry. It will still go to the other side of the North
Block," he said.
"As far as the leak is concerned, I think it is a
universal view that leak must be probed. I don`t think anyone
in any political party or any section of media questioned the
probe into the leak," he said.
