VVIP chopper scam: CBI files FIR against Ex-IAF Chief SP Tyagi, 11 others

By Feednpost Network on Wednesday, 13 March 2013 at 01:50 PM

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered a first information report (FIR) against 12 persons in the VVIP chopper deal, including former Air Force chief SP Tyagi.

Apart from the 12 persons, formal FIRs were also registered against four companies, CBI sources said on Wednesday. The firms are Finmeccanica, AgustaWestland, IDS Infotech Ltd. (India) and Aeromatrix India. The country's premier probe agency has also raided 14 places in the National Capital Region, Delhi and Chandigarh.

A CBI and Defence Ministry team had gone to Italy to collect documents concerning alleged kickbacks to clinch the deal. The investigative agency filed a preliminary inquiry against 11 people on February 25. 

Investigations are on into bribery allegations in the Rs.3,600 crore deal for 12 AgustaWestland-101 choppers. Former Finmeccanica CEO Giuseppe Orsi was arrested on February 18 by Italian authorities on suspicion of engaging middlemen to swing the deal in his firm's favour.
