Nanda speaks on Lokdhara at New delhi

New Delhi: 59-year-old Lt General A K Nanda, engineer-in-chief Indian army is facing allegations of misconduct with an officer's wife. He has been accused by the wife of a junior officer of molesting her during a trip to Isreal last month.

Nanda and his team had gone to Israel along with their families on an official trip during which the alleged incident took place.

The woman, wife of a Colonel-rank officer, is said to have complained to the army chief's wife Bharti Singh, the president of the Army Wives Welfare Association, who put it up before Gen VK Singh.

However, wife of Nanda, today dismissed allegations of sexual misconduct levelled against his husband.

Reacting to reports of Nanda's alleged involvement in misconduct, army spokesman said that there are some allegations, which are being investigated but the General has not been asked to resign.

Preliminary investigations show that there are a number of loopholes in the account of allegations. Further investigations are in progress.
