A Major in the Indian Armed Forces has been granted justice 33 years after he was court martialled. He was expelled from the army on charges of mugging during Operation Blue Star. The Armed Force Tribunal has now awarded justice to the army officer by giving him a compensation of Rs. 10 lakh and the position of lieutenant colonel.

Navbharat Times reports that major KA Singh was commissioned in the Madras regiment in 1967. He was posted to Jalandhar in 1984. His regiment was ordered to get the Golden Temple vacated from terrorists under Operation Blue Star. As per instructions, 26 officers entered the temple in command of lieutenant colonel KMG Pannikar.

Major KA Singh was the second commanding officer of the troop. The Army got the temple evacuated and seized the weapons and electronic items recovered from the terrorists. Major KA Singh was accused of keeping some valuables from the temple in his private custody and was court martialled from the Army.



The Major challenged his court martial in the high court in 1989 which was later transferred to the army court of Lucknow. The panel comprising Justice DP Singh and air marshal Anil Chopra found the charges against major KA Singh as incorrect.

According to the report, major KA Singh was pressurized to accept his fault and was baited with a promotion. However, he did not succumb to the pressures and signed the not-guilty column in the papers during his court martial.
