Report on Brig Singh objective, not biased: Lt Gen Pal

Lt Gen Kishan Pal, who has been indicted by the Armed Forces Tribunal for showing bias against a Brigadier during the Kargil war, today rejected the allegations, saying his report was "objective".



New Delhi: Lt Gen Kishan Pal, who has
been indicted by the Armed Forces Tribunal for showing bias
against a Brigadier during the Kargil war, today rejected the
allegations, saying his report was "objective".

"I was never called by the Armed Forces Tribunal and
asked about the case or whatever I had written in my report,"
Pal said.

Raising serious questions about the military
leadership in the 1999 Kargil war, the Tribunal has indicted
Pal for showing bias towards Brigadier (Retd) Devinder Singh,
playing down his achievements and for falsifying accounts of
battles.

When asked about the allegations of his bias, he said
"Whatever I have written about any officer, that is objective.
I had no bias against any officer."

The Tribunal, whose observation has come as an
embarrassment to the Army, directed that the Singh be
considered for a notional promotion.

The report of Pal, then General Officer Commanding
(GOC) 15 Corps who oversaw operations in that sector, not only
cost Singh a war medal but also deprived the Brigadier of
promotion as Major-General.

The matter came to light after Singh who led 70
Infantry Brigade in the Batalik sector in the Kargil war,
filed a petition in the Delhi High Court complaining of wrong
depiction of his battle performance. Several complaints
similar to Singh are pending before the Tribunal.
