    Post Kargil war with Pakistan in the Kargil sector of India. The CAG found abnormalities in the purchase of Coffins for the Martyrs of the Kargil War. The nature of the irregularities committed in clearing certain defense deals mentioned in the Comptroller and Auditor-General's report showed gross irregularities were committed in the purchase of coffins by the Army during the Kargil operation. The caskets that were bought from US-based funeral service company Buitron and Baiza for the slain soldiers in the Kargil war were allegedly purchased at a price higher than the actual cost.

    The Bharatiya Janata Party - led government decided to go in for emergency purchase of coffins following the action in Kargil that resulted in the death of more than 500 jawans and army officers. The scrutiny of records by the CAG showed that some middlemen made huge profit by supplying the coffins at highly inflated rates. The Indian government bought about 500 caskets for 2,500 dollars each, which is believed to be thirteen times higher than the actual price. The government incurred a heft loss of 1,87,000 dollars in the purchase.

    Of course, the supplier on his own could not have been able to palm off substandard "imported" coffins without the help of willing insiders who must have been bribed for clearing the deal. The Army top brass is not usually involved in the purchase of defence material and equipment. The placement of orders is routed through civilian agencies.

    The investigation was passed on to the CBI which filed a Chargesheet in 2002 following the Coffin scam related to the Kargil War netween India and Pakistani hired Islamic militants. The three Indian army officials named in the chargesheet are Major General (retired) Arun Roye, Colonel (retired) SK Malik and a serving officer Colonel FB Singh; along with the American manufacturer of the aluminium caskets.


    Surprisingly, the name of the then Defense Minister George Frenandis was missing from the reports. He was given a clearance and a clean chit from the scam.

    There was a huge uproar and rage in India after the Coffin Scam was unearthed, there is another aspect that needs to be explained in context to the India Pakistan Kargil War Coffin Scam. India is now counted among the fastest growing economies in the world. And yet it still does not have the wherewithal to produce body bags and aluminum coffins for meeting domestic needs! It is evident that all aspects of the coffin deal need be investigated by the vigilance and other concerned agencies. And the culprits should be awarded harshest possible punishment for their role in the despicable deal.

    U can try to wipe out the remains to clear ur names, but it was BJP who was ruling the country & they are equally responsible in these scams (I named only one, will come out with more).....Its the same way as u guys are criticizing the present Congress government.

    Its a shame that BJP has even sold the blood of the soldiers for a few thousand dollars.....Shame.

    Just go now & try to save NDA....they need u more than in this forum.

    If BJP/NDA are somuch hated by you guys even when they have a great track ecord of Development in Gujrat, Bihar, Panjab, MP, Chattisgarh and you came up with a scam(which is just one scamwhich is still needed to be called a scam but with price high I consider it a scam even though there is a chance that BJP had paid the high prise to just get these things quick as former congress and Sayunkt Morcha govt. were not interested in even having a simple thing like this for our army) to proof your point against them.... just make a guess what will be the level of our hate for UPA and its supports patries which has done hundreds of scams... lost all strategic benefits in 1948 and 1971 to pakistan and didn't used IAF in 62 war....

    my dear none is saint but even a scoundrel is preferable over a traitor.... Do a study of how NDA led India in 6 years of its rule and how many current benifits you enjoy are because of it... including the Internet, Mobile, LPG and several other day-to-day benifits.

    I think u shud start finding more 100 reasons for 2014 and mind u, loosers always finds a reason.

    Unfortunately, last time I was not able to vote as well....I'll make sure this time I vote.

    I do respect ur point of views, but portraying something which is not true is not fair. U guys are smart in linking old news with new ones & showing tht India is in a brink of disaster bcoz of Congress......Pls also u need to mention ur source when u claim that they have done so many things for India. Assuming something will not make u right.
