"The General Officer has had a distinguished career in the Indian Army, tenating a number of important command and staff appointments," the spokesperson said.

Before assuming command of the Fire and Fury Corps, Lt Gen Menon was tenating the appointment of Director General, Recruiting at New Delhi.

Lt Gen Menon exhorted all ranks to continue to discharge their duties with the same commitment and zeal and always be prepared to deal with any threat to national security, the spokesperson said.
