Ex-Air Force Chief SP Tyagi, 9 Others Named In Chopper Scam Chargesheet

Former Air Force Chief SP Tyagi and 9 others have been changed by the CBI for bribery in the AgustaWestland chopper bribery case. 

The charges filed in a Delhi court also name Mr Tyagi’s cousin Sanjeev Tyagi and advocate Gautam Khaitan as accused.

SP Tyagi, who headed the Air Force between 2004 and 2007, has been accused by investigators of helping AgustaWestland win the chopper contract by tailoring specifications at the instance of his cousins. The 71-year-old officer was arrested in December last year but was released on bail by the high court.
