NEW DELHI: The Centre on Friday requested the Delhi High Court to grant more time to respond to the petition filed by former Lt General Tejinder Singh for directions to the Army Headquarters for the withdrawal of press release issued on March 5, which had alleged that he had offered bribe to the Chief of Army to clear a file relating to the purchase of a tranche of 600 ‘sub-standard’ Tatra trucks. Additional Solicitor General A S Chandhiok told Justice Mukta Gupta that a week’s time is required to take a stand on the issue. All the files with regard to various officers named by the petitioner have not reached him, he stated. Tejinder had moved the High Court seeking the withdrawal of Army press release. Earlier, while hearing Tejinder’s plea, Justice Gupta had asked the Centre to clarify if the press release with allegations against him was issued by the Govt or by the Army officials in their individual capacity.
