Army captain to face court martial over demonetisation scam

New Delhi/IBNS: An Indian Army Captain would face general court martial proceedings on 12 different charges of corruption and wrongdoings committed during the demonetisation exercise carried out in November 2016, media reports said.

The GCM is scheduled to begin from January 10, 2022, according to an ANI report.

The GM would be held at the Western Command headquarters where disciplinary proceedings related to charges that he allowed exchange of old currency notes for new notes several times on days when no transactions were allowed.

At the time, the Army Captain was posted in the Army Postal Services in the Delhi area, army sources told ANI.

It has been alleged that the officer also did not submit the record of the currency notes withdrawn held by the Army central base post office in the national capital, the sources said.

The officer along with another accused in the case managed more than 5,000 forged forms for withdrawal of new currency notes using fake identity cards, the sources told ANI.

In connivance with another person, he managed more than 5,000 forged forms for withdrawal of new currency notes using fake identity cards, the ANI report said citing sources.

Last week, a Lieutenant Colonel was convicted by a court-martial on charges of illegally exchanging old currency notes for new ones.
