In an unprecedented move, Army Chief Gen V.K. Singh on Monday moved the Supreme Court against the government’s rejection of his claim on his date of birth.
In a writ petition, he is believed to have questioned the government’s decision to treat his date of birth as May 10, 1950 instead of May 10, 1951 as claimed by him on the basis of his matriculation certificate and other documents.
This is the first time that any Service chief has dragged the government to the court of law. The petition has been filed and senior advocate U U Lalit will represent Gen Singh before the apex court.
