Who leaked Army CoS Letter to PM: ‘Cabinet secretariat officer leaked Army Chief’s letter’ – Hindustan Times


Who leaked the Army Chief’s letter to PM Manmohan Singh? Initially, the Govt. indicated that it happened from Army HQ. When Army HQ called for ‘ruthless action’ truth came tumbling after …

A Joint Secretary-rank officer in the Cabinet Secretariat has been found guilty of leaking Army Chief General V K Singh’s letter to Prime Minister Manmohan

Singh about the poor state of preparedness of his force and has been shunted out. A probe into the leakage by the Prime Minister’s

Office (PMO) has also cleared Gen Singh of any wrongdoing in the episode, highly-placed sources told PTI here.

In his letter, the Army Chief had highlighted the critical shortage of equipment and ammunition in artillery and armoured regiments.

The female officer belonging to the Indian Economic Service (IES) was handling the charge of intelligence agencies under the Cabinet Secretariat and was nailed after

interrogation of some suspected persons, they said.

The officer has now been repatriated to her parent cadre and further action can be taken against her for leaking such a sensitive document, sources said. (via ‘Cabinet secretariat officer leaked Army Chief’s letter’ – Hindustan Times).

So, the Govt. has found a ‘fall guy.’ In this case it is a lady.

Why would this lady IES officer leak a document like this – unless instructed?

Instructed by whom?
