Army chief General Deepak Kapoors decision to take only administrative action rather than the harsher disciplinary action in the shape of a court martial against his close aide and military secretary Lt-Gen Avadhesh Prakash has evoked incredulity down the ranks. The court of inquiry (CoI) into the alleged Sukna land scam case, in which three other generals have been indicted blames Lt-Gen Prakash for allegedly concealing information and taking undue interest in furthering the vested agenda of real estate developer and family friend Dilip Agarwal.

The Army HQ on Tuesday, however, said it would be premature to conclude that Lt-Gen Prakash, who retires on January 31, would escape with just an administrative reprimand. But the erupting fissures in the top Army brass are there for all to see. Eastern Army Command (EAC) chief Lt-Gen V K Singh, who is slated to become Army chief on March 31, has locked horns with Gen Kapoor after having recommended immediate termination of services of his aide Lt-Gen Prakash.
