New Delhi: The CBI on Friday questioned Lt Gen (retd)Tejinder Singh for the third consecutive day in connection with the Tatra all terrain vehicles suppply scam and complaint of Army Chief Gen V K Singh about alleged bribe offer made to him by the senior officer.

Singh, who arrived early in the morning, remained at the CBI Headquarters for nearly seven hours with the investigators for questioning, CBI sources said.

The agency is likely to register a regular case in connection with the complaint made by the Army Chief that he was offered a bribe of Rs 14 crore by Tejinder Singh to clear the supply of a tranche of all terrain Tatra trucks, the sources said.

After registering a preliminary enquiry into the allegation, CBI has already taken the statement of Army Chief and also questioned Tejinder Singh.

Tejinder Singh has refuted allegations that he had made any alleged bribe offer and filed a defamation case against the Army Chief and other senior army officers.
