VVIP choppers deal: CBI court issues warrants against 3 European middlemen


A special CBI court has issued non-bailable warrants against three European middlemen in connection with the AgustaWestland VVIP choppers deal case. Yesterday, the court also served summons on the other accused including former Indian Air Force chief SP Tyagi.

The CBI said, the non-bailable warrants and the summonses were issued against the accused on the basis of its charge sheet filed in September this year. The middlemen are Carlo F Gerosa, Christian Michel and Guido Haschke.

The agency had filed the charge sheet against nine people, including Mr Tyagi and five foreign nationals, in connection with alleged bribery in the procurement of 12 VVIP helicopters from the UK-based AgustaWestland during the UPA-2 government.

The charge sheet has estimated a loss of nearly 2,666 crore rupees to the exchequer in the deal. The deal was signed in February 2010, for the supply of the choppers worth 3,726 crore rupees.
