New Delhi: Trouble seems to be brewing up for Army chief General VK Singh yet again as the Chandigarh bench of the Armed Forces Tribunal is all set to hear a petition against him, filed by Major General TS Handa. Maj Gen Handa filed an appeal against Singh saying his "annual confidential report" had been "spoilt" as he could not change the Army chief's date of birth.

General Singh is currently in the UK on a five-day visit.

It is the first visit to the UK by an Indian Army Chief in four years.

Reports said General Singh will be interacting with senior military and civilian hierarchy and discussing various defence related issues to strengthen existing defence ties with that country.

A release issued by the Army said General Singh's visit will last till Friday. The last visit by a COAS to the UK was in March 2008.

This will also be the Army Chief's first visit abroad after the Supreme Court order on his age row on February 10, which said the government decision on his date of birth will apply to his service matters, forcing him to withdraw his petition.

Soon after the order, there was intense media speculation that the Army chief could quit soon even before his term is over as a number of names made rounds for the next COAS. Gen Singh is due to retire on May 31.

The Army Chief plans to return to the country by February 20, sources said on Sunday.
