New Delhi: The Army is holding the Summary of
Evidence (SoE) against former Military Secretary Lt Gen
Avadesh Prakash in the Sukna land scam at the Eastern Command
Headquarters in Kolkata.

The SoE started on July 19 and a number of witnesses
including former Lt Gen P K Rath, who was also indicted in the
case, have recorded their statements, Army sources said
here.

Some of the witnesses are yet to record their statements
and after the process is over, the Army will look into the
findings of the SoE and then decide the future course of
action, they added.

If the SoE finds basis for continuing disciplinary
action against Prakash, he will then face a court martial,
sources said.

Disciplinary action was recommended by a Court of Inquiry
headed by a three-star officer after Prakash was indicted for
his role in issuing no-objection certificates to private
realtors for building educational institutions on a 70-acre
piece of land adjacent to the Sukna military station in West
Bengal.

11 Corps Commander Lt Gen Ramesh Halgali and Maj Gen P
K Sen were also indicted in the case along with Rath and
Prakash.

While Rath and Prakash are facing disciplinary action for
their roles, Halgali and Sen faced administrative action.
