New Delhi, September 19

The CBI has filed a supplementary chargesheet against British National Christian Michel James and businessman Rajeev Saxena in the AgustaWestland chopper scam.

In its final report filed before Special Judge Arvind Kumar, the CBI has named both alleged middlemen Michel and Saxena, and 13 others. The court is likely to take up the matter for consideration on September 21.

According to sources, the probe report filed on Friday details the alleged role played by Michel, Saxena and others in bringing bribes for politicians, bureaucrats and Indian Air Force (IAF) officials in India in the scam.

The sources said the agency, which had earlier this year sought sanction from the authorities concerned to prosecute former defence secretary Shashi Kant Sharma, has not named him as an accused since the request is not granted yet. — PTI


Rs 2,666 crore loss

The CBI has alleged that the deal signed in February 2010 to supply VVIP choppers worth 5,56,262 million euros caused an estimated loss of 39,821 million euros (about Rs2,666 cr).
