Agusta case accused brought to India
New Delhi: Rajiv Saxena, an accused in the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal bribery case, being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate, was on Wednesday brought to India from Dubai on board a special plane.
Counsel Geeta Luthra alleged that Saxena was picked up by the United Arab Emirates authorities from his house and illegally deported to India.
"There were no extradition proceedings started in the UAE, and he was not allowed access to his family or lawyers or heart and daily cancer medicine. He is suffering from Leukaemia, diabetes and has previously had stents in his heart. He was on-boarded onto a private jet from a private terminal at Dubai International Airport," read a statement released on his behalf.
According to the ED, Saxena was a beneficial owner of Interstellar Technologies Limited (Mauritius), a firm allegedly involved in the laundering of funds.
