Navy orders inquiry into alleged financial irregularities
Sunday October 26, 2014 5:24 PM, IANS

The Eastern Naval Command has constituted a Board of Inquiry (BoI) to look into allegations of financial irregularities against some senior naval officers.

The board will investigate the allegations made by Shipwright Artificer Sunil Kumar Sahu, a sailor posted at INS Kattabomman in Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu, a statement said.

The sailor, in two written complaints made Oct 13 and Oct 20, raised allegations of financial irregularities against his superior officers.

A three-member BOI, headed by a Commodore-rank officer, is expected to submit its findings in a fortnight.

The statement said Sahu has been carrying out non-strenuous duties as he suffers from generalised seizures and low backache. On Oct 22, he was observed to be in a state of hyper anxiety and agitation.

Considering the limited medical facilities at Tirunelveli and safety of the sailor, Sahu was shifted to the nearest naval hospital Sanjivini Oct 23 for observation and medical attention.

On a request from the sailor, his family has been permitted to accompany him to the hospital, as a special case.
