PUNE: Col Anil Kumar Singh, presiding officer of exams, allegedly conducted typing tests of some candidates for appointment of civil employees in his office instead of the computer lab in the National Defence Academy (NDA), the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) submitted in its report to a special court on Tuesday.
The court has remanded Col Singh to CBI custody till July 7. He was arrested on Monday after his anticipatory bail application was rejected by the court. The CBI told the court that Col Singh was admitted to the state-run YCM Hospital in Pimpri after he complained of high blood pressure on Monday night. So he was interrogated only for two hours on Tuesday morning.
He was produced in the court of special judge (CBI) D R Mahajan in the afternoon for seeking a 14-day custody. "We want to interrogate him to find out why three or four candidates were given the typing test in his office and not in the computer lab. Also, who sent the candidates to him," Deputy Superintendent of Police (CBI) Rajpal Singh told the court.
"We want to recover the list of candidates, which was deleted from the official computer and was taken by Col Singh in his pen drive," he added. His interrogation is required for checking the over-writing in the answersheets of the candidates. Also, the amount of Rs 52 lakh in bribe amount, allegedly given to him by another accused Col Kulbir Singh, is yet to be recovered, Singh said.
CBI special public prosecutor Vivek Saxena told the court, "After taking permission from the Union Home Ministry, we taped their conversation between June 7 and June 18. They used code language during the conversations. We would like to confront Col A K Singh with the recorded conversation and get more details about the job-for-cash scam."
The CBI told the court that it has appealed to the NDA authorities to station a military doctor at the CBI office so that he could conduct a check-up on Col A K Singh for any health-related problems.
Defence sources told "Sakal Times"that"officially the NDA does not have any satellite phone." The CBI claimed to have recorded about 500 conversations of Col A K Singh and other accused, who used to talk on satellite phones about the collection of bribe money from the aspiring candidates.

Comment: Criminal minded officers are being posted to the NDA which is a premier training institute. Just imagine a physically unfit Officer is posted as the Physical Training Officer to the Academy. On his arrest he reports sick. The MS needs to be sacked for posting such criminal minded Officers to the NDA and bringing shame to the institute and military at large. There is a case for investigating the MOD and MS if they are taking bribes for lucrative postings to NDA. The ACR nine pointer system is a disaster. All 9 pointers Officers postings need to be thoroughly investigated.
