VK Singh
New Delhi, Feb 28: After Army Chief General VK Singh's debacle in the court over age row, the Union Defence Ministry has now denied permission for his Israel tour. He was scheduled to visit the country from March 16 to 18.

The reason behind the denial by the ministry was referred as "critical situation prevailing in the Middle-East."

After the court took the government's side, the Army chief had withdrawn the petition for changing the date of birth to 1951 from 1950.

Meanwhile, Gen Singh is due to step down on May 31, 2012.
