    A General Court Martial (GCM) at Jalandhar today ordered the cashiering of Lieutenant General S K Sahni (retd), 64, and sentenced him to three years rigorous imprisonment for procuring sub-standard rations for troops. He is only the second Lt Gen to have been punished by a court martial.

    Lt Gen Sahni, who was awarded the Ati Vishisht Seva Medal, was found guilty on six charges related to intent to defraud (Section 52(f) of Army Act) and “violation of good order and disciplineâ€￾ (Section 63 of Army Act).

    All charges were related to the period when he was Director General of Supplies and Transport in 2005.

    Today’s order is subject to confirmation by the Chief of the Army Staff.

    The GCM, which comprised Lt Gen Jatinder Singh as

    presiding officer, six

    officers of the rank of Maj Gen, and Col N K Ohri as Judge Advocate, held Lt Gen Sahni guilty of allowing the request of M/s Grainfed

    Good to see that system of checks and balance and accountability is applicable to Army too.

    It would be a strong lesson to those who think they are above the law.

    When I see such news items I feel proud of India, and the Indian Army. Yes, I am delighted that such checks and balances exist, and that there is no 'holy cow' which cannot be questioned.
