To probe or not to probe


MINISTRY of Defence Production secretariat is agog with the buzz regarding the recommendation of an enquiry by the Chief Vigilance Commission about a lady IAS officer from the Tamil Nadu cadre who has worked in the ministry. The enquiry is about the purchase of armaments and other supplies from Russia. The Ministry of Defence Production investigated that the equipments and armaments supplied by Russia were of sub-standard. It was also reported that the million-dollar order was placed irrespective of the objections raised on the file. The CVC is in a fix as the lady officer is now serving in a constitutional post. Ministry sources disclosed that if the enquiry is set up and the investigation is conducted seriously, many more skeletons will emerge from the closet. Observing the serious nature of bilateral relations between Russia and India, the investigation is not moving at the right speed.
