Retired admiral applies for position on Armed Forces Tribunal

Vice Admiral
Shekhar Sinha, IN (Ret)
Hindustan Times reports here that a retired Indian Navy vice admiral, Shekhar Sinha, who was passed over for the Navy's highest position has applied to become a member of the Armed Forces Tribunal, the appellate court for military justice and personnel cases. The article observes:
“While he [Sinha] put in his papers in the correct military tradition, the fact remains he was not happy with the government’s decision. To that extent, he could be carrying some baggage and may not be truly impartial,” said Major General Nilendra Kumar, a former judge advocate general. Kumar said an administrative member’s job was of a judicial nature.
