It is rapidly turning out to be yet another skeleton in scam tainted UPA-2's closet. The probe into the $208 million Embraer deal with India is gathering steam. After Brazil filed its first case in the company's deal with the Dominican Republic, the NDA govt has now swung into action.
Sources have told NewsX that the Defence Ministry will formally ask the CBI to take over the probe from tomorrow with reports indicating that the very same SIT probing the Agusta deal will now look into this scam as well.
Indian attaches in US and Brazil have also been tasked with working in tandem with the local probe agencies in order to glean more details. All this to answer a pertinent question - were UPA leaders beneficiaries of another defence scandal?
