Lieutenant-General (retired) Tejinder Singh , accused of trying to bribe Army chief General V.K. Singh, has now been accused of harassment by Major (retired) S.K. Lamba, a whistleblower in the Adarsh Housing Society scam .
Lamba said that between 2005 and 2007, Tejinder – the then Major-General and General Officer Commanding for Maharashtra and Goa – implicated him in false criminal cases to dissuade him from delving deeper into the Adarsh scam, for which the retired Major has filed countless RTI applications since 2005. Late in 2010, it emerged that Tejinder Singh also had an apartment in the tainted society.
Lamba said he held the Lt-Gen. in high regard and confided in him about the Adarsh findings, persuading him to take up the matter, “That is when the problem started,” the retired Major said. He alleged that in February 2006, six Army jawans detained him while he was feeding medicines to stray dogs at the United Services Club at Colaba on the supposed orders of Colonel R.K. Sharma (then military police chief). The jawans lodged a complaint with the Colaba police station, accusing Lamba of misbehaving with them. Two days later, they filed another FIR, accusing Lamba of rash driving.
Singh, the then chairman of the club, also suspended Lamba’s membership for six months.
