DA case: suspended army officer moves SC over death threats from insurgents

A suspended army officer, facing a CBI probe for allegedly amassing disproportionate assets, on Thursday approached the Supreme Court with a plea that he feared for life from insurgents in Manipur, where he claimed to have been framed in a false corruption case.

Lieutenant Colonel Harpreet Singh was posted at Manipur in the intelligence wing of Assam Rifles where he had carried out a series of operations against insurgents in which he claimed that over 100 ultras had surrendered and several of them were killed.

A vacation bench of Justices Adarsh Kumar Goel and Ashok Bhushan was told by Singh's counsel that the officer had received death threats in April this year when he had gone to Imphal to attend court proceedings in a disproportionate assets (DA) case lodged against him by the CBI.

The matter was mentioned in the court for urgent listing by senior advocate S P Singh and advocate Sudhakar Dwivedi and the bench said that the plea seeking transfer of the DA case from Imphal to Chandigarh would be heard after re-opening of the top court following the ongoing summer vacations.

He claimed to have collected intelligence inputs against Robin Luwang Cha, now the chief of militant outfit People's Liberation Army, during his posting at Imphal. This has angered an army officer, who was related to Robin and was posted in vigilance wing of Assam Rifles.
