The failed intelligence operation was understood to have carried out in Assam in December.
Gen VK Singh had recently stirred a hornet’s nest after he alleged bribery charges and the army’s preparedness. Lt Gen Dalbir Singh is presently the Commander of the 3 Corps which functions under the Eastern Army Command headed by the next Army Chief Bikram Singh.
