lookout_AntonyNEW DELHI: CBI has issued a lookout notice against a former IAF chief in connection with alleged irregularities in procurement of VVIP helicopters, Defense Minister A K Antony told the Lok Sabha today.

In a written reply to the House, he said, “CBI has issued Lookout notice against a number of individuals in India including a former chief of IAF in connection with the said case.”

Though Antony did not name the IAF chief in his reply, former Air Chief Marshal S P Tyagi’s role in the deal is being inquired by the CBI. Tyagi’s bank account was recently frozen by the investigative agency and he was also questioned by them.

The Defense Minister also said that it has received an initial set of documents from Italy in connection with the deal.

“Government has received an initial set of documents from Italy pertaining to alleged irregularities in AgustaWestland deal which include copy of the search and seizure order issued by the Judge of the preliminary investigation in Busto Arsizio, Italy,” Antony said.

Copies of certain contracts entered by AgustaWestland with various entities in Tunisia and India have also been provided by the Italian government.

The Minister was replying to a question whether the government has received the first set of documents from Italy regarding the alleged irregularities in the AgustaWestland helicopter deal.

In reply to a separate question on court martial of a Commanding Officer and other personnel of an artillery unit, he said, “Based on an Army CoI, disciplinary action has been initiated against four officers including the CO, 17 Junior Commissioned Officers (JCO) and 147 Other Ranks.”

He was asked whether the Army CoI has recommended Court Martial proceedings against 168 personnel including the Commanding Officer of the artillery unit. –PTI
