: The former Army Chief, General V. K. Singh’s house here witnessed high drama on Saturday when an Army officer landed there apparently to remove a telephone exchange and it was seen by the family as an attempt to install snooping devices, after which the Army apologised.

A Major of the Signals Regiment was “detained” by the family members who called the media to the scene in Mandir Marg in Delhi Cantonment at 2 p.m.

The family linked it to the withdrawal of the Z-plus security to Gen Singh, who has been at loggerheads with the establishment for over a year following the controversy over his age.

Gen. Singh’s family members claimed that Major R. Vikram from 1st Signals Regiment entered their house without prior permission and may have been trying to bug telephones. “We found him [Major] at the house. They [team] could not give any reasonable logic for being here. ,” said Gen. Singh’s lawyer Vishwajeet Singh. — PTI
