Sep 05, 2014 04:55 PM IST India India

New Delhi: New Delhi: The armed forces tribunal has set aside Lieutenant General PK Rath's conviction and punishment in the Sukna land scam case in West Bengal on Friday.

Lieutenant General Rath was previously found guilty in the scam on three counts. It was for the first time in the history of the Indian Army that a serving Lieutenant General had been found guilty in a scam.

The land scam which came into the open in mid-2008 had the names of Lt Gen Rath and Lt Gen Avadesh Prakash brought out among the senior army officers who influenced the decision to issue the NOC to a Siliguri-based private builder to construct an educational institution on a 70-acre land adjacent to the Sukna military station in Darjeeling.
