New Delhi: Indian Air Force Wing Commander Pooja Thakur on Thursday moved Armed Forces Tribunal after being denied permanent commission in Indian Air Force (IAF). “Armed Forces Tribunal admitted the matter and has sought IAF’s response within four weeks,” Thakur’s lawyer Sudhanshu Pandey told a news agency.
Thakur, who joined the Indian Air Force in 2000, belongs to the administrative branch and is currently posted at ‘Disha’, the publicity cell under the Directorate of Personnel Officers at the Air Force Headquarters.
Earlier in January this year, Thakur became the first lady officer to lead the Inter-Service Guard of Honour which was inspected by US President Barack Obama at Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi.
