Gen Singh letter leak: IB soon to complete probe

New Delhi: Government today said the Intelligence Bureau has been asked to quickly complete its inquiry into the leak of a letter written by Army Chief Gen V K Singh to the Prime Minister highlighting various shortcomings in the Army but no time has been fixed for it.

"I don`t think there is a time-frame. The Ministry of Defence has asked the IB to look into the matter and I know that the IB is looking into the matter. There is no time-frame. But obviously it has to be done quickly," Home Minister P Chidambaram told reporters here.
He was responding to a question on when the IB will complete its probe into the enquiry of the leak which has triggered sharp reactions from the government and opposition parties.

On Thursday, Defence Minister A K Antony vowed to take the "strongest action" under laws against those responsible for the leak of Gen Singh`s letter to the Prime Minister.
Antony said the government will get to the root of it and find out the persons behind the "anti-national" act.
