A Delhi court today awarded seven-year rigorous imprisonment to retired captain Salam Singh Rathore in the 2006 Navy War Room leak case. Special CBI Judge SK Aggarwal handed down the jail term to Rathore for the offence of spying under the Official Secrets Act. The judge said, Rathore committed the offence against national security. The court considered the submission of the prosecutor that several secret documents were recovered from the possession of Rathore which he could not account for.
Another accused in the case, Commander (retired) Jarnail Singh Kalra was, however, acquitted by the court.
