Sukna land scam
New Delhi, Aug 21: A serving Lt Gen, former 33 Corps Commander Lt Gen P K Rath, is set to face a court martial after being indicted in the Sukna land scandal for allegedly favouring a land developer.

Lt Gen Rath, who is currently attached to the Eastern Command, will be the only serving officer of the rank to face court martial proceedings in the Armed Forces in Sukna, West Bengal.

Both Rath and former Military Secretary Lt Gen (retd) Avadesh Prakash were indicted in the Sukna land scandal for issuing no objection certificates to a local developer, Dilip Agarwal, for building an educational institution on a land belonging to Indian Army.

An Army inquiry revealed that Prakash influenced Rath to give the developer the no-objection certificate, even though the same had been rejected by former officers due to security implications.
