One of the senior army officers, Lt. Gen. A .K. Nanda was charged with molesting his subordinate officer’s wife. There was a news that he was asked to resign from the post. But the army cleared it that it had neither ordered him to resign nor he resigned. It also said, ‘there seems to be many loop- holes in the complaint. The enquiry is going on. Nanda’s wife has also condemned the allegation.’
59 years old Nanda is designated as Engineer-in-chief. He is the first senior officer, facing such allegation. According to army sources, he had been on foreign tour for two months when a Col.’s wife charged him with such contention. Nanda along with his some colleagues of the department went to Israel on official tour. The wives of the members of the team also accompanied them. The wife of his secretary- technical lodged a complaint to ‘Awa’s chairman’- Bharti Singh, wife of chief general V K Singh. Mrs. Singh immediately informed army chief about the complaint.
A year ago, Nanda took the charge of this post as an Eng.-in-chief. Before that he was posted in Border Roads Organization as Director. Nanda’s secretary had already shown his desire not to work with him and then was posted to Bhopal. In place of him Col. Sanjeev Dayal had been posted. Nanda’s staff refused to talk on this matter when his office was being tried to approach.
On the other side, Nanda’s wife took the stand in his favor and said, “I along with him had also been on that tour. I have no doubt in the context of his character and army can probe in this matter, the truth will come out itself.”
