This article was originally published in Foodnews

AN INDIAN Army office has been dismissed from service and jailed for three years by a court martial after being found guilty of irregularities in the procurement of milk powder (FOODNEWS 6 August). Lieutenant-colonel Kuldeep Singh authorised the purchase of over 1 500 tonnes of skimmed milk powder worth over INR100 million (USD2.1 million) in Jammu and Kashmir when the military held adequate stocks of its own. The powder was illegally shifted elsewhere. Singh was found guilty of 15 charges out of 25 charges brought, including that of intent to defraud, irregularities, acts prejudicial to good order and military discipline under the Army Act. Another officer of colonel rank is also facing a court martial for failure of supervision and technical inspection in the fraud.
