AgustaWestland scam: Ex-IAF chief SP Tyagi granted bail by Delhi court


New Delhi.
A Delhi court on Monday granted bail to former air force chief Air Chief Marshal SP Tyagi (retd), one of the three accused in the Agusta Westland chopper scam.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) counsel earlier on December 23 had requested the court not to disclose evidences to anyone saying if the evidence gathered was disclosed, there would be implication on future investigation.

The investigating agency said they were on pre-chargesheet stage and a very crucial time of investigation was going on.

The Patiala House court had on December 17 remanded the trio to judicial custody till December 30 as their CBI custody ended.
Earlier, the CBI had moved the 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.
