It is coffin scam made from kargil war heroes.The Central Bureau of Investigation registered a case against three senior Army officials and a U.S.-based casket vendor in connection with the alleged bungling in the purchase of caskets and body bags for the Army during the Kargil conflict.The Defence Ministry had imported aluminium caskets and body bags from a U.S.-based funeral service company that the Army would require to transport the mortal remains of soldiers from battlegrounds.
The case was registered against Major-General (retd.) Arun Roye, the then Military Attache in the Indian embassy in the U.S., Director Colonel S. K. Malik and Joint-Director Colonel Fateh Bahadur Singh, and Buitron and Baiza, the U.S.-based firm, a CBI spokesperson said here.
The CBI booked these officials based on the prima facie disclosure of commission of cognizable offences
