Let Centre complete Agusta probe, nail culprits under law: AK Antony
Thiruvananthapuram (Kerala) [India], Dec. 23(ANI): Former defence minister A.K. Antony on Thursday said let the Centre complete the investigation into the Agustawestland Scam and bring the guilty to book.
"In our time, when we found something wrong, we only ordered an enquiry, cancelled the contract, fought in Italy and won. So, let them complete the probe. This Government has been there for two-and-a-half years; they must complete the enquiry and bring the guilty to justice." Antony said.
The Delhi Court had earlier adjourned the hearing on the bail plea of former air chief S.P. Tyagi, his cousin Sanjeev Tyagi and businessman-cum-lawyer Gautam Khaitan in the AgustaWestland chopper scam case till December 23.
"All evidences asked by ED or CBI have been provided. Details of properties, bank accounts and foreign trips were handed over," said the former air chief's counsel.
The Patiala House court on December 17 had remanded the trio to judicial custody till December 30 as their CBI custody ended.
Also, The CBI had moved court seeking a 10-day custody to interrogate Tyagi and the other accused in the case.
Tyagi has been accused of influencing the deal in favour of AgustaWestland during his tenure as the IAF chief.
He has, however, repeatedly denied the allegations. (ANI)
