Under attack over purported activities of a secret intelligence unit set up by him, former Army chief Gen V K Singh on Monday filed an RTI application to seek a copy of the Army probe into functioning of the Technical Support Division (TSD).

"We have filed an RTI addressed to the Defence Ministry to get a copy of that report submitted by the Army," Singh's lawyer Vishwajeet Singh told PTI here.

"We have also sought inspection of the file related to the issue and aslo asked what action has been taken by the Government on the story done by a particular media organisation on the issue," he said.

On whether the top secret inquiry report could be sought through RTI applications, close aides of V K Singh said when the government can leak the report to media organisations, it should also be willing to provide it to us as well.

The TSD, which was set up during the tenure of Gen Singh, has been accused of carrying out unauthorised operations and financial wrongdoings.

The unit has also been accused of indulging into activities for destabilising the Jammu and Kashmir government.
