Former IAF Chief SP Tyagi to be Questioned by CBI | AgustaWestland Scam

Former Indian Air Force Chief S P Tyagi will appear before the CBI for questioning in the Rs 3,600 crore AgustaWestland VVIP helicopter deal on Monday (May 9). The CBI has grilled Tyagi before and so has the Enforcement Directorate (ED). Sources had earlier indicated that Tyagi’s questioning was necessary in the light of a recent judgement of a Milan (Italy) court which had sentenced Italian defence and aerospace major Finmeccanica’s former chief Giuseppe Orsi and former CEO of the firm Bruno Spagnolini on corruption charges in the sale of a dozen AgustaWestland helicopters to India for VVIP use. Tyagi’s name cropped at various points in the judgement. The allegation against him is that he allegedly reduced the height of the VVIP helicopters so that AgustaWestland could be included in the bids. He took over as the Indian Air Force chief on December 31, 2005 and retired from service in 2007.
