Agusta Westland Bribery case: SP Tyagi, two cousins in ED chargesheet

In the Augusta Westland Chopper case, Enforcement Directorate has filed a supplementary charge sheet in Patiala House court. Chargesheet has been filed against former Air Force chief SP Tyagi and  his two cousins, two Italian middlemen and Finmeccanica.

The charge sheet also names as accused Italian middlemen Carlo Gerosa and Guido Haschke.

The charge sheet accuses them of money laundering of around 28 million Euro.

The charge sheet was filed before special judge Arvind Kumar and will be taken up for consideration on July 20. 

The ED, in its charge sheet, has said that money has been laundered through multiple foreign companies which were used as fronts to park alleged kickbacks.

India had scrapped the contract with Finmeccanica’s British subsidiary AgustaWestland for supplying 12 AW-101 VVIP choppers to the IAF over alleged breach of contractual obligations and charges of kickbacks in January 2014.
