Ex-IAF Chief Tyagi Grilled by CBI | AgustaWestland Scam

Former IAF chief SP Tyagi was grilled by the CBI for the second day on Tuesday (May 3) in connection with the controversial Rs 3,600-crore AgustaWestland chopper deal. Tyagi arrived at the CBI headquarters at 11 AM, sources said. The agency had questioned him on various aspects of the case including his alleged links with middlemen, his alleged trips to Italy, reasons behind changing specifications, and relations with his cousins yesterday, the sources said. Recently, the Milan Court of Appeals in Italy had concluded that bribes were paid to clinch the deal. CBI had registered a case against Tyagi along with 13 others including his cousins and European middlemen. The allegation against the former Air Chief was that he reduced flying ceiling of the helicopter from 6,000m to 4,500m (15,000ft) which made Agusta Westland helicopters eligible in the race for the deal.
