One thought on “Air Marshal SB Deo takes over as DG AIR (Ops) at Air Headquarters

  1. It is BLACK DAY for the IAF! This man is a total hypocrite. He presents himself as officer and gentleman to his superiors but for his subordinates and family members he is a nightmare. Drove his son to the point of committing suicide! A total failure who lacks integrity and shoots a lot!
