HC asks Centre to decide on change in naval history plea

The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Monday directed the Union government to decide within three months the representation of a petitioner seeking correction in naval history in regard to the sinking of INS Khukri during the 1971 Indo-Pak war.

A division bench comprising Chief Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri and Justice Rakesh Kumar Jain were hearing a petition filed by one Chanchal Singh Gill, who had sought directions for a comprehensive inquiry by a commission headed by an eminent person with judicial experience and members who are experts in the field pertaining to the sinking of INS Khukri.

"Gallantry awards conferred on officers and sailors of INS khukri and Kripan should also be audited," Gill pleaded.
