SC pulls up ex-Army chief VK Singh

The Supreme Court on Wednesday pulled up former Army chief VK Singh for making contemptuous remarks on the apex court judgment on retired Army chief's age row.

Calling VK Singh's remarks a serious affront to judiciary, the apex court asked him to explain his position by November 20.

One cannot be allowed to scandalize the court like this, it is not permissible, the top court said.

We welcome criticism of our judgment but we don't welcome motive attributed to the court judgment, the Supreme Court said.

The Supreme Court allowed the AG to draft contempt charges against the former Army chief for remarks casting aspersions on judges who heard his petition seeking correction of his date of birth.

The draft will be served on him possibly in the next hearing.
