New Delhi: Former Air Chief Tyagi, a prime accused in the AgustaWestland (AW) VVIP chopper deal case, admitted to a series of meetings that he had with the Agusta officials. The CBI on Monday questioned the former Airforce officer. Though the officer during questioning by the admitted to the meetings he said he was not guilty.
At the time of questioning, Tyagi told the agency, a series of meeting was held with Agusta officials. It is learnt that Partners Guido Haschke and Carlo Gerosa, the alleged middlemen in the AgustaWestland deal, had built a complex maze of companies to route bribes to India.
A few days ago while speaking to NewsX, Tyagi had vehemently denied going to any meeting.
The role of former Air Marshall Tyagi is under question. He has not denied on record that the middlemen may have met his family members, but has denied his own involvement. At the same time he has also mentioned that whatever he did was at the instance of the government.
The big question now that needs to be answered is who in the government really instructed him or gave him those details. Will SP Tyagi reveal those names?
