CBI freezes former IAF chief’s bank accounts

The Central Bureau of Investigation has frozen the bank accounts of the former Air Chief Marshal S P Tyagi for allegedly receiving kickbacks in the Rs 3,600 crore in the AgustaWestland VVIP helicopter deal.

The bank accounts of Indian companies named in the alleged scam – Aeromatrix Info Solutions Private Limited and IDS Infotech – have already been frozen by the agency, they said. The sources said bank accounts of Tyagi’s cousins – Sanjeev alias Julie, Rajeev alias Docsa and Sandeep – have also been frozen as part of the investigation.

Other Indians named in the FIR whose accounts have been frozen by the agency include former Union Minister Santosh Bagrodia’s brother Satish Bagrodia, who is also Chairman of IDS Infotech, the company’s Managing Director Pratap Aggarwal, Aeromatrix CEO Praveen Bakshi and legal advisor Gautam Khaitan, the sources said. Tyagi is the first IAF chief to be named in a corruption or criminal case by CBI.
