New Delhi: Upset over being superseded for the post of Navy Chief, Western Naval Commander Vice Admiral Shekhar Sinha has filed a complaint with Defence Ministry and said that if “justice” is not done to him, he would take voluntary retirement.


In his letter to the Ministry, he has complained against being overlooked for the appointment to the top post, sources said.

Sinha has also told the government that if “justice” cannot be done to him, he should be given voluntary retirement, sources said here.

Admiral Robin Dhowan, Vice Chief of Naval Staff, was appointed as the Navy Chief yesterday superseding Sinha, who was the seniormost Vice Admiral.

The post of Navy Chief had fallen vacant after the sudden resignation of Admiral D K Joshi on February 26 in the wake of a series of mishaps involving naval assets.
