Why did CBI arrest me 3 years after FIR, asks SP Tyagi

New Delhi,, Dec 18 (IBNS): Ex-Air Chief Marshal SP Tyagi has now questioned that why has he been arrested three years after the first registration of FIR by CBI against him, media reports said.

Tyagi, in his bail application, has reportedly asked that why he was summoned in May , 2016 when the CBI lodged an FIR in March 2013.

A Delhi court on Saturday sent Tyagi to judicial custody till Dec 30.

Tyagi was arrested in connection with the VVIP chopper deal scam.

Apart from Tyagi, other two accused- Sanjeev Tyagi and lawyer Gautam Khaitan- were sent to judicial custody till Dec 30.

An Italian court investigated the contract because Augusta's parent company is Finmeccanica, an Italian defence manufacturer, and decided that vast amounts of bribes were routed to India by company executives to land the deal for 12 VVIP helicopters for about Rs. 3,600 crore.

The deal was cancelled by India in 2014 after the Italians began investigating it, a point the Congress is flashing in its defence along with the fact that AgustaWestland has not been banned by the new government from bidding for new defence deals.
