Jagath Jaysuriya in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Ending months of wrangling over Gen. Vijay Kumar Singh’s age, the government decided Thursday to recognize his birth date as May 10, 1950, requiring that he retire next year when he turns 62.Singh had argued he wasn’t born until 1951, which would give the third-generation officer another year as army chief.
